HUGH FRASER and VANCOUVER ENSEMBLE OF JAZZ IMPROVISATION ("VEJI"). The Vancouver Ensemble of Jazz Improvisation, better known as VEJI, was born in a Vancouver basement in 1980 under the musical mid-husbandry of Hugh Fraser. This brash young bunch redefined big-band jazz and hued out a music scene on the west coast that still reverberates internationally and inspires all that are present for a VEJI "event". Their first album, VEJI was released in 1980 after winning the Canadian Stage Band Festival. Classic VEJI followed on a Toronto label and VEJI NOW! with over 20 musicians including a harp was short listed (top ten) for a Grammy in 1990. In 1999 they released "V" with amazing sucess and are now proud to announce the release of their 5th CD "BIG WORKS" featuring full string and choral.
Album: "V". Release year: 1999. Download Hugh Fraser & Vancouver Ensemble of Jazz Improvisation - Salsa Nova.
