WJMAC presents the Vincent Herring Quartet


The great alto and soprano saxophonist Vincent Herring returns to Bellingham leading a quartet featuring Carl Allen on drums, Yasushi Nakamura on bass, and Victor Gould on piano. The veteran leader of 20 recordings and over 250 as a sideman “has an unerring knack for merging technical command with heart-on-sleeve emotiveness.” (New Yorker, 11/6/17) Joe Lovano calls educator, producer, and drummer Carl Allen “an international powerhouse.” says Yasushi Nakamura brings an “unstoppable swing feel and hard earned versatility”, while pianist Victor Gould has been called “a musical force to be reckoned with.”
