A Charlie Mingus Tribute with Alex Coleman – Live or Online
October 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$20
Alex has performed often with Canada’s top musicians, toured the country multiple times with The Cookers Quintet, and led his own projects frequently. Recently Alex performed at Hermann’s Jazz Club with Canadian jazz legends Don Thompson and Phil Dwyer.
One of Alex’s longest standing projects is a tribute to the late, great bassist and composer Charles Mingus. Mingus’s music – swinging rambunctious, heartfelt, and maniacal – and sometimes all in 4 bars – is never predictable, and a lot of fun to listen to and perform.
Alex’s group are, again, some of the finest musicians around. Tenor saxophonist Ryan Oliver’s huge, swinging sound anchors the front line of this group. There is no drummer that swings like Hans Verhoeven! Nick Peck, from Vancouver, will be in the piano chair playing his always-exciting style. Last, but not least, is Victoria’s own trumpet master: Pat Boyle.
