Rose Gellert season wraps up with jazz quartet

Jazz saxophonist Mike Allen and his quartet perform at LCMS on Friday night.

Vancouver saxophonist Mike Allen and his group, the Mike Allen Quartet visit Langley for the final Rose Gellert Hall concert of the 2010-11 season on Friday, April 29 at 7:30 p.m.

“Four of Vancouver’s top jazz artists will feature a balanced mix of classic jazz standards from the likes of Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker and Thelonius Monk,” says LCMS artistic director Elizabeth Bergmann.

“Our audience will also recognize and enjoy some Broadway show tunes by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and Frank Loesser.

“And, adding even more spice to the mix, the musicians  plan on presenting some original compositions by members of the quartet and from four of Mike’s most recent albums  Fearless, Love One Another, Vancouver, and Threads.”


The Mike Allen Quartet has been in existence for more than two decades. The group features Miles Black-piano/guitar, Adam Thomas-bass/voice and Julian MacDonough-drums.

Thanks to musicianship of the highest order and an unparalleled emphasis on dynamics and musical conversation, every song they play flourishes to its full potential, says Bergmann.

Tickets are available at the Langley Community Music School box office at 604-534-2848. Prices are for $22 adults, $20 seniors, and $16 students.

The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 St.
