Jane Bunnett and Maqueque, one of the top jazz groups in North America, are gearing up for a new project.

The Juno-winning, Grammy-nominated ensemble are recording their new album Playing With Fire, with a release date still to be determined.

But before then, the band is playing songs from the new record for one night only at the El Mocambo on Thursday, Sept. 15.

The concert is part of a new initiative by JazzinToronto to bring more jazz acts to the iconic Toronto venue, which recently completed a $37-million renovation project.
