Jazz up your Dine Out Vancouver Festival experience with the Weeds / Minemoto Quartet and guest Chris Davis as they play the Clifford Brown Max Roach Songbook.

This night features CORY WEEDS tenor sax, SHARON MINEMOTO piano, CHRIS DAVIS trumpet, TOM WAKELING bass, JOE POOLE drums.
In 1954, months before the Jazz Messengers, spearheaded by Art Blakey and Horace Silver, formed serendipitously at a Blue Note recordings session, Max Roach was forming his own quintet with Clifford Brown in Los Angeles. It would become the first defining group in the music that would soon be known as hard bop.
*includes three course meal and performance. Taxes, beverages and gratuity not included.
