The celebrated Canadian soprano saxophonist is embracing voices again. But these voices are of a slightly different sort. The Creole Choir of Cuba is long gone to other things but Ms. Bunnett is back with an exquisite new ensemble of vocalists and instrumentalists named “Maqueque”, which means, as Ms. Bunnett’s short note on the CD sleeve points out, “the spirit of a young girl, in the ancient Afro-Cuban dialect.” Much of the stellar reputation of Canadian jazz and world music heroine Jane Bunnett has been based on her passionate and adventurous explorations of the treasure trove that is Cuban music. She returns to the island with well-received new project Maqueque. This pairs the veteran composer/bandleader/multi-instrumentalist with six talented young female Cuban musicians and singers.Four-time JUNO Award winner, two-time Grammy nominee, and Officer of the Order of Canada, soprano saxophonist/flautist Jane Bunnett has been chosen as a finalist for the Ontario 2014 Premier’s Award for Excellence in the Arts. The award, through Ontario’s Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, recognizes extraordinary achievements of the province’s artists and arts organizations JANE BUNNETT AND MAQUEQUE
