This week we bring you jazz that's out of this world, as we head to the Planetarium, circa 1975.
That's when legendary Vancouver saxophonist Fraser MacPherson
staged a historic concert which spawned the album, "Live at the Planetarium." It launched MacPherson's solo career, lead to worldwide touring, and inspired generations of aspiring jazz musicians.
On March 20, top BC jazz artists come together for a 40th anniversary concert at the Planetarium
, with proceeds going to the Fraser MacPherson Scholarship Fund
This Saturday, we'll get a preview of the concert with original guitarist Oliver Gannon
and Fraser McPherson's son, Guy.
