Regina Jazz Society Presents: NICK MACLEAN QUARTET feat. BROWNMAN ALI
This November, multi-award-winning NICK MACLEAN QUARTET feat. 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.
