Orbital News - Lunar For Later

 


With Artemis missions, NASA will land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon, using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before. They will collaborate with commercial and international partners and establish the first long-term presence on the Moon. Then, they will use what they learn on and around the Moon to take the next giant leap: sending the first astronauts to Mars.

Exploring Factors Of Twelve With Noam Lemish


The

The orchestra assembled by Lemish for this recording features an All-Star band from Canada’s contemporary jazz scene, made-up of multiple JUNO award winning musicians: Mike Murley and Kelly Jefferson (tenor sax and soprano sax), Allison Au (alto sax), Kevin Turcotte and Jim Lewis (trumpet), William Carn and Karl Silveira (trombone), Ted Quinlan (guitar), Michael Davidson (vibraphone), Laura Swankey (vocals), Justin Gray (bass), and Derek Gray (drums). Each of these acclaimed artists display their deep musicality and breathtaking virtuosity at every turn. JUNO award winning trombonist/composer/arranger and long-time member of Rob McConnell’s Boss Brass, Terry Promane, serves as musical director and producer for Twelve. Promane’s influence and fine touch firmly ties this production to the rich and distinguished legacy of Canada’s celebrated jazz orchestras.
