Chelsea McBride's Socialist Night School, after five years of performance around Toronto, release our first full-length album, "The Twilight Fall". It begins in a daydream, with your six-year-old self, falling through a purple sky with orange clouds. You explore this otherworldly place, find new friends, encounter many challenges, but underpinning it all is the rushing motion of the train, taking you away to work, or home, or love. "The Twilight Fall" is the first Browntasauras Records release of 2017, and is funded in part by The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent On Recordings (FACTOR) and the Toronto Arts Foundation.

Chelsea McBride’s Socialist Night School is an 19-piece big band led by composer and multi-instrumentalist Chelsea McBride. The band is a collective of emerging & established Toronto musicians, including Brownman Ali and Colleen Allen. Described as “a fresh new voice on the Canadian jazz scene ” by saxophonist and composer Andy Ballantyne, the band has performed at major venues across the city, including sold-out shows at Rex Hotel and the mainstage at the TD Toronto Jazz Festival. The Socialist Night School is a different sounding big band, drifting away from the typical swing charts in favour of a more contemporary sound. The Socialist Night School is influenced by artsy, everyday stuff like politics, nature, city living, but also by ECM-style jazz, Maria Schneider, Bob Brookmeyer, and Darcy James Argue.

Opening up the evening will be Mason Victoria's SSJO - SONUSKAPOS Jazz Orchestra. SONUSKAPOS is a 18 piece big band led by Mason Victoria. Comprising of many jazz musicians currently attending school for music, SONUSKAPOS aims to give the opportunity for band members to write and play amongst peers in a large ensemble setting. Striving for unique collaboration, the big band plays many different styles of big band music from class swing era to borderline experimental.
