Patrick Boyle's Ode to Confederation
Marking the 62nd anniversary of Newfoundland's union with Canada, the Performance Hour features new music by Patrick Boyle.
Well Enough Alone: The Confederation Suite was composed by Patrick in a special commission for CBC Radio.
You'll hear the debut broadcast, recorded during a concert at the LSPU Hall in St. John's.
It features an all-star lineup of Newfoundland jazz alumni:
- Patrick Boyle, trumpet and flugelhorn.
- John Nugent, saxophone.
- Bill Brennan, piano.
- Jim Vivian, bass.
- Michael Billard, drums.
The second set from this concert featured another Patrick Boyle composition: Same Here, along with Charlie Parker's Confirmation and the Gershwin classic Embraceable You.
