A concert featuring music inspired by drummer Claude Ranger, performed by
Buff Allen, Bernie Arai, Miles Black, Paul Blaney, Bill Clark, Phil Dwyer, Kevin Elaschuk,
Bruce Freedman, Miles Foxx Hill, André Lachance, Bob Murphy, Clyde Reed, Ron Samworth,
Dave Say, Stan Taylor, Brad Turner, Tony Wilson, Dylan van der Schyff and Rene Worst

For these two concerts in tribute to Claude Ranger, we will re-unite the community of players who worked
with the master drummer during his West coast tenure and present a regional celebration of Ranger’s music
and the musicians he touched and inspired.
Ranger is a Canadian jazz legend whose intensity, virtuosity, and creativity rank him among the greats. He
began his career in Montréal in the 1960’s and moved to Toronto in 1972 where he was a fixture on the
scene for fifteen years – accompanying top Canadian and US musicians in the city’s jazz clubs. Claude moved
to Vancouver, living here for a decade or more from about 1987 to early 2000 (at which time he
disappeared). He worked as a sideman, collaborator, mentor and bandleader, inspiring the numerous
musicians he played with and audiences who heard him during his Vancouver tenure.
This is a two-night tribute to this brilliant musician – seven sets of music – a different ensemble per set, by
the alumni of his various projects – the small groups and the larger Jade Orchestra. The musicians who will
be involved constitute the cream of the modern mainstream as well as the avant-garde, representing the
full range of Ranger’s artistry. The programmed material will draw upon some of Claude’s original
compositions, and will also feature original compositions, arrangements and improvisations by the featured
This event promises to be a heartfelt and thoughtful acknowledgement of Claude’s unique gift to the world
of music.

Columbia through Direct Access to Charitable Gaming and the City of Vancouver through Cultural Services.
