George Koller World Jazz for Haiti

On January 12, 2010, the nation Haiti was torn apart by a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 earthquake. An estimated 3,000,000 people were affected by the quake and the   aftershocks. The Haitian Government estimated that 230,000 people had died, 300,000 had been injured, and 1,000,000 were made homeless as a direct result of this disaster. Over 250,000 residences and 30,000 commercial buildings were damaged or utterly destroyed.

George Koller the Great Bassist from Toronto decided to do something and created this CD. The CD includes some of the finest Singers and Musicians in the Toronto Area, everyone from Guido Basso and Mike Murley to Jackie Richardson and DK Ibomeka. All proceeds from this CD are donated to the Canadian Red Cross Haiti Fund. Here is Laila Biali with Radiance. Here is an image gallery of some of the artists on the CD. Here is a link to the facebook fan page.
