Streetlight Records

In the summer of 2021, I put together the quartet on this recording for a gig at Frankie's Jazz Club in Vancouver, BC. It was one of those nights where everything came together in every aspect. Club was packed with an appreciative and enthusiastic audience, the band was fired up and ready to go and most importantly my dear friend and supporter of jazz Yvonne DeTroye was at her usual perch taking in the festivities. When we were packing up, she approached me as she usually does to tell me how wonderful the band sounded AND that should we ever decide to record she would be more than happy to lend financial support. My first thought was "the world does not need another Cory Weeds record," but as things usually go when someone plants a seed I start thinking, plotting and strategizing. Around this time, I had just taken the Presidents role at The Fraser MacPherson Jazz Fund and I started thinking about how we could use this recording as a fundraiser. After 18 months of a pandemic the fund was basically depleted and needed to increase it's fundraising efforts and create some awareness. Bingo! I had my solution!Yvonne donated to the FMJF to produce this CD and 100% of the proceeds from the sales (in all formats) benefit The Fraser MacPherson Jazz Fund.
