Mike Allen performed with his quartet at CBC Studio 700 on November 7th as part of the Legacy Jazz Society Series. In this particular instantiation of the quartet Mike was joined by Steve Holy on Bass, Sharon Minemoto on Keyboard and Dave Robbins on Drums.
This is a sneak peek of a longer recording by The Jazz Shed of this performance. More will follow soon.
Special thanks to Dexter Gregoire for the beautiful filmography.
