Coat Cooke

Coat Cooke Quartet @ Vancouver Jazz Fest/July 1

I'm extremely excited to be playing with my new band, the Coat Cooke Quartet tomorrow (July 1st, 2013).

We'll be performing at Perfromance Works on Vancouver's Granville Island during the Canada Day celebrations there.

We play one set for about 70 minutes.

The incredibly talented band features Chad MacCQuarrie on guitar, Karlis Silins on electric and acoustic bass and

Joe Poole playing drums. We'll be playing new pieces of mine like; My Penelope, Yo Yo Yo; old chestnuts like Ranül

and Rhumbatto and a few tunes that I've always wanted to do like David "Fathead" Newman's The Clincher,

 a quirky arrangement of Thelonius Monk's Epistrophy and a loving tribute to George Harrison playing his song

Within You Without You.

I really hope you can make it out to hear us. The cost is right ... it's free. You just have to be willing to brave the crowds

and the heat.
