Event Details

Nikki Malley Quintet
Deviating from the standard jazz quintet makeup, the Nikki Malley Quintet utilizes the unique timbres of vibraphone and trumpet to explore both traditional and modern jazz literature with particular focus on hard bop, ECM, and contemporary/popular styles. From lesser known works by jazz greats to creative arrangements drawing on genres outside the jazz tradition, Malley’s repertoire reflects a life-long artistic curiosity inspired by her dual roles as performer and musicologist. The quintet’s distinctive creative voice is brought to life in collaboration with trumpeter Edgar Crockett, pianist Derel Monteith, bassist Andy Crawford, and drummer Jason Brannon.

The ever-popular CIJS House Band under the leadership of Larry Harms kicks off the evening, featuring outstanding jazz musicians from the area. They present a variety of jazz standards and other popular arrangements. Always a delight!
Beverages are available for purchase.
