Holiday Classics performed with a modern jazz twist by “Canada’s preeminient jazz trumpet player” (New York Village Voice) and his hard-swinging award-winning mainstream jazz quartet! After a busy few months of Browntasauras Records tour dates, award-winning trumpet player Brownman Ali returns to Toronto’s La Rev to bring his straight-ahead hard-swinging acoustic quartet — featuring 26-year rising star pianist Nick Maclean on piano — for some Christmas mirth. A yearly tradition during the holiday season, Brownman re-orchestrates many of the quintessential seasonal archetypes with his own unique visions.
— “Frosty the Snowman” with a Cuban twist
— “We Three Kings” as a hip-hop track
— “Rudolph” as a hard-swinging tune
— “Jingle Bells” in 7/8
— “Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire” as a Brazilian Samba
— “Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” like a 50’s Miles tunes
— “Do You Hear What I Hear” as down-tempo soul
— “Silent Night” as a funk ballad
All these and more!
Holiday cheer interpreted and re-imagined by one of the nation’s
modern jazz iconoclasts.
