The multi award-winning Nick Maclean Quartet featuring Brownman Ali embarks on an ambitious, month-long national tour across Canada, travelling from hometown Toronto all the way to the Pacific coast and everywhere in between.
Led by 26 year old fast-rising piano star Nick MacLean (Global Music Award winner), this contemplative and thrilling quartet explores modern jazz in the vein of 60’s Blue Note era Herbie Hancock. The quartet heavily features 2x National Jazz Award winner and internationally acclaimed jazz iconoclast Brownman Ali, heralded as “Canada’s preeminent jazz trumpet player” (NYC Village Voice) alongside some of the top 20-something jazz musicians Canada has to offer making this show of hard-swinging modern-jazz one audiences will not want to miss.
PHOJ patrons who attended the June 2018 concert by the Socialist Night School Band will remember Ali as the red hot trumpet player featured in many solos. The quartet’s national tour of Canada will deliver 36 concerts & masterclasses while traversing 5 provinces bringing exposure to audiences who previously would have only been able to hear the group on the radio or internet.
Table reservations are recommended for this show. Tables will be held until 1:30 p.m. Call 250-324-2245.
