Sold out!***Caliban Arts Presents: A Blue Note New Years with The Brownman Akoustic Quartet***Sold out!

Saturday, December 31, 2016 @ 8:30 pm

$40 – $55



“Bring in the New Year with internationally acclaimed, multi-award winning jazz trumpet player Brownman performing a night of hard-swinging tunes from the classic Blue Note Era. You’ll hear music by Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan, Grant Green, Horace Silver, Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, and many many more…  The ensemble will begin with swing classics and slowly, over the course of the night, start to interpret them in the contemporary jazz fashion Brownman has become renowned for.  By midnight — expect it to be a full on jazz-funk New Year’s party you won’t want to miss!”

About Brownman – Heralded as “Canada’s preeminent jazz trumpet player” by New York City’s Village Voice magazine, winner of 2 National Jazz Awards, 4 Independent Music Awards, a CBC Galaxie “Rising Star” Award and named “one of the top 10 reasons to visit Toronto” by Air Canada — Brownman is widely regarded as a vanguard for the evolution of jazz in Canada.  This dynamic performer has been chalking up the airmiles in recent years between tours with the award-winning BROWNMAN ELECTRYC TRIO and global guest appearances with luminaries such as Paul Simon, Quincy Jones, Jay-z, Missy Elliot, Pavlo and many others.  But all the globe-hopping hasn’t made him forget his passport says Canada on the front!  Trane Live Events, Caliban Arts Theatre & Pero Lounge are proud to have one of the country’s jazz iconoclasts — accompanied by a cast of three of Toronto’s hottest top-shelf 20-somethings as side-men!

:: Brownman Ali – trumpet / electric trumpet / flugelhorn
