Welcome to Maple Heat: Canada Deep Volume 5.
This episode features more overlooked and under-appreciated Canadian jazz releases, with a particular focus on those released in the late seventies and early eighties. All the releases featured here were commercially available. However, low pressing numbers, limited distribution and other factors meant that many of these titles faded into obscurity.
Stylistically, the tracks in this episode range from big band jazz-funk to spiritual jazz and feature both novice and well-established Canadian players.
