Over the 1st three Saturdays in March, internationally acclaimed and recent 2024 JUNO nominated jazz trumpet iconoclast BROWNMAN ALI and an all-star cast of Toronto’s jazz finest will explore the unique compositional works of 3 classic legendary jazz composers — HERBIE HANCOCK (Mar. 02), FREDDIE HUBBARD (Mar. 09) and the recently departed WAYNE SHORTER (Mar. 16) — all historically recognized instrumentals, whose famed compositions are now part of the fabric of jazz culture.  Each week will feature top-tier musicians backing Brownman, including another recent JUNO nominee NICK MACLEAN.
