The Nikki Malley Quintet turns the traditional jazz quintet aesthetic on its side with the unusual front line pairing of vibes and trumpet. With a focus on both original arrangements of repertoire outside the standard literature and under-explored gems of the Cool, Hard Bop, and Avant-garde periods, the quintet re-imagines both the familiar and the unorthodox within their distinctive sound-world. The lineup includes Nikki on vibes, Edgard Crockett-trumpet, Derel Monteith- piano, Andy Crawford- bass and Jason Brannon- drums
The Central Illinois Jazz Society House Band will play during the first set, under the leadership of Larry Harms - sax
. The CIJS House Band features outstanding jazz musicians from the area. They will present a mixture of jazz styles. For more information visit www.cijs.org or call 243-1582. Food and beverages are available for purchase at this live jazz program.
