Mike Allen Trio Water St. Café
December 30, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$5
Tenor saxophonist Mike Allen’s affinity for the sax-bass-drums trio format is on full display on his 2019 CD release “Just Like Magic” (Cellar Live) featuring Peter Washington-bass and Lewis Nash-drums. Recorded at Van Gelder’s world-famous studio in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, Mike’s trio music is a blend of melodiously swinging standards and originals played with an ear to thoughtful interaction and groove. “Spare, elegant, melodic, soaring and fierce-Vancouver’s Mike Allen has arrived as the country’s top jazz saxophonist.” (Doug Fischer-Ottawa Citizen)
