One Night Only! October 20 at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

Canadian saxophonist Kirk MacDonald's “Vista Obscura" with legendary Harold Mabern recently won the 2015 Juno Award for Best Jazz Album Solo. The Juno Awards are comparable to the U.S. Grammys—and this swingin' band blows into Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola for one night only on October 20th!

“One of Canada's leading saxophonists for over 25 years—Kirk's musical inquisitiveness seems to have no end. He is constantly pushing the envelope, searching for new ideas, new sounds!" —Lorne Lofsky

With piano great Harold Mabern in the mix, the night will be magical. This is the U.S. premiere of MacDonald's cricitally acclaimed release Vista Obscura. Come be part of the event!

As the Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola website touts: “Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola is proud to host the album release party of Kirk MacDonald's Vista Obscura, an album that just won a 2015 Juno Award (the “Canadian Grammy") for “Best Jazz Recording Solo Artist." It's a major feat, and expectations are high for this performance. The band is comprised of similarly prolific musicians, including Harold Mabern, Neil Swainson, and Andre White. The album features mostly originals, for which MacDonald is well known, plus two Coltrane compositions. The new compositions were written with this extraordinary band in mind and will appeal to jazz fans across the board."

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
