Jill Townsend Records the Compositions of Ross Taggart

Arranger extraordinaire Jill Townsend will arrange 10 compositions of the late Ross Taggart and record them with her all star big band!

On January 9th, 2013 saxophonist, pianist & composer Ross Taggart succumbed to cancer. Ross' passing hit the Vancouver, Canadian and North American jazz scenes very hard and his presence has been sorely missed by all. Ross was a larger than life figure, always making people laugh and continuously putting the needs of others ahead of his own. Ross had an instantly recognizable tenor saxophone sound that was big and robust a la Dexter Gordon and his touch on the piano was remarkable. He had the rare gift of making everyone around him play better and sound better and feel better.

Ross left a large legacy of compositions behind that have been played and recorded by many. In collaboration with award winning bandleader Jill Townsend, Cellar Live had the idea of getting Jill to arrange 10 of Ross' compositions for her big band of which Ross was a founding member, and recording them to make up the big band's second CD.

This project is being funded by a Kickstarter Campaign, please visit the campaign page to back this project! All proceeds from CD sales will go towards a charity set up for continuing Ross' legacy, as well as helping fellow musicians in critical need.
