Mike Allen/Kevin Dean Quintet

The Mike Allen/Kevin Dean Quintet presents a swinging assortment of jazz classics, standards and original tunes played with energy and passion. Mike, Kevin, Alec and André have been making music together for decades. They will be joined by emerging, gifted pianist Jihye Im.

“Spare, elegant, melodic, soaring, fierce – Mike Allen has arrived as the country’s top jazz saxophonist. Echos of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman and Joe Lovano resonate through Allen’s work, but the Vancouver-based saxman has channeled them into a voice of his own, by turns soulful, intense, lush, and dynamic.
