Those who have been appreciating the short trip on a country road to a beautiful setting with top jazz musicians, completed with the musings of Reverend Shana, will be sure not to miss this upcoming vespers with the 26-year old rising star jazz pianist NICK MACLEAN and his multi-award winning modern-jazz quartet featuring acclaimed trumpet iconoclast BROWNMAN ALI as they tour Canada.
This November, multi-award-winning NICK MACLEAN QUARTET featuring BROWNMAN ALI embarks on their ambitious, month-long national tour across Canada, bringing them from their hometown of Toronto all the way to the Pacific coast and everywhere in between. 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

Maclean's quartet heavily features one of Canada's most provocative improvising trumpet players -- BROWNMAN ALI, heralded as "Canada's preeminent jazz trumpet player" by New York City's Village Voice. Recognized as an internationally acclaimed jazz iconoclast, he currently splits his time between Brooklyn, NY & Toronto, Canada and is a 2x National Jazz Award winner. This jazz veteran is best known globally as the last trumpet player with the legendary jazz-hip-hop group GURU's JAZZMATAZZ, having replaced Donald Byrd in that seminal ensemble. Ali & Maclean stand shoulder-to-shoulder with 2 of Toronto's top-tier 20-somethings: BEN DUFF on upright bass, and JACOB WUTZKE on drums.

This tour features many nights of deeply exploratory, hard-swinging modern-jazz that audiences nation-wide will not want to miss. Full, detailed tour info at: www.TourNMQ.brownman.com#full
Enjoy jazz with a splash of spiritual inspiration in venues with exquisite sound and setting. These hour-long evening services are a unique blend of jazz and spirituality. Each service brings together live music from popular jazz musicians, a brief meaningful message, and a little of the history of the music performed.
