This February, the multi-award-winning Canadian modern jazz
ensemble the Nick Maclean Quartet feat. Brownman
Ali embarks on their international tour across Scotland
and the UK. Led by 26-year old fast-rising piano star Nick
Maclean - a 6x Global Music Award winner, a graduate of
the University Of Toronto, and one of the most in-demand young jazz
piano players in Toronto - this contemplative yet thrilling quartet
delivers jazz between the two poles of thoughtful introspection and
powerhouse conveyance, taking influences from Herbie Hancock's
primordial 1960's Blue Note era recordings, while paying tribute to
some of the greatest improvisers in jazz history
The quartet heavily features one of Canada's most provocative improvising trumpet players currently splitting his time between Brooklyn, NY & Toronto, Canada -- 2x National Jazz Award winner & internationally acclaimed jazz iconoclast -- Brownman Ali heralded as "Canada's preeminent jazz trumpet player" by New York City's Village Voice, and best known internationally as the last trumpet player with the legendary jazz-hip-hop group Guru's Jazzmataz. Ali & Maclean stand shoulder-to-shoulder with 2 of Toronto's top-tier 20-somethings: Jesse Dietschi on upright bass, and Tyler Goertzen on drums.
This tour features many nights of deeply exploratory, hard-swinging modern-jazz audiences will not want to miss.
