WJMAC presents Mike Allen Quartet

Jazz

Mike Allen Quartet featuring Miles Black. Vancouver jazz masters Allen and Black have played together in various configurations for over twenty years--it is sheer delight to hear them together. On their 2017 album, “Bob’s Piano”, Ted Quinlan of Whole Note Magazine notes “Allen’s burnished tone and understated approach mesh perfectly with Black’s melodicism, the two soloing as one at times.” The evening promises to be distinctive, memorable. Mike Allen (saxophones), Miles Black (piano), (bass) and (drums) tba.
