PRESS RELEASE :

8x Global Music Award winning pianist NICK MACLEAN brings his dynamic modern-jazz quartet across Canada featuring internationally acclaimed trumpet iconoclast BROWNMAN ALI. 

This April & May, the multi-award-winning NICK MACLEAN QUARTET feat. BROWNMAN ALI embarks on their ambitious 2 month National tour across Canada, bringing them from their hometown of Toronto all the way to the Pacific coast and everywhere in between. Led by fast-rising piano star NICK MACLEAN -- an 8x Global Music Award winner, a graduate of the University of Toronto & Humber College, and one of the most in-demand young jazz piano players in Toronto -- this contemplative yet thrilling quartet delivers jazz between the two poles of thoughtful introspection and powerhouse conveyance, taking influences from Herbie Hancock's primordial 1960's Blue Note era recordings, while paying tribute to some of the greatest improvisers in jazz history

Maclean's quartet heavily features one of Canada's most provocative veteran improvising trumpet players currently splitting his time between Brooklyn, NY & Toronto, Canada -- internationally acclaimed jazz iconoclast -- BROWNMAN ALI. Brownman is heralded as "Canada's preeminent jazz trumpet player" by the New York Village Voice; is a 2x National Jazz Award & 8x Global Music Award winner & was named NOW Magazine's "jazz musician of the year".  He is best known internationally as the last trumpet player with the legendary jazz-hip-hop group GURU's JAZZMATAZZ, and has since worked with the likes of Jay-z, Missy Elliot, Paul Simon & Quincy Jones.

Ali & Maclean stand shoulder-to-shoulder with 2 of Toronto's top-tier rhythm section players: BENNETT YOUNG on upright bass (in for Ben Duff), and MIKE RAJNA on drums (in for Jacob Wutzke).

This tour features many nights of deeply exploratory, hard-swinging modern-jazz audiences will not want to miss.

QUOTES / PRESS:

"Rites of Ascension [...] is a tribute to Herbie Hancock’s elemental 1960s Blue Note era recordings, and a daring original musical statement on its own. ... These four musicians [...] have a great synergy and drive, and some serious chops. Their renditions of Hancock’s four classics are full of energy and forward momentum while managing to retain the unhurried character of the earlier compositions.  Maclean’s creative mind and aesthetics are obvious in every aspect of this album, his piano solos both lyrical and invigorating, supported by a stellar rhythm section. The album features fiercely strong trumpet solos from Brownman Ali, indicative of Freddie Hubbard’s style at times and distinctively unique."
-- Ivana Popovic, The WholeNote (Toronto, Canada)

 “Rites Of Ascension ... here’s a hot CD by a Canadian-based jazz group playing four pieces by Herbie Hancock mixed in with a plethora of original tunes by the leader (Nick Maclean) and trumpeter Brownman Ali... this band is like a tonic; they wake you up and put some pep in your step!  An outstanding album, one that should put the Maclean Quartet firmly on the musical map. No two ways about it, the Nick Maclean Quartet has staked out its claim in the jazz world and intends to stick around.”
-- Lynn Rene Bayley, The Art Music Lounge (Cincinnati, USA)

 “From Canada comes this updated soul jazz in the vein of the Blue Note acid jazz compilations. Fresh and youthfully joyful reworkings of three Herbie Hancock standards lead the disc off before we settle into several of pianist Maclean's own compositions. Key to the sound is the gloriously expressive trumpeter Brownman Ali, who contributes one of his own tunes here, the funky "Madness of Nero", as well as producing.”
-- Hobart Taylor, KUCI 88.9FM (California, USA)

 “Rites Of Ascension is one of the best [recordings] I have heard this year (and I receive about 60 + per month).  Well above average, and that Brownman Ali is just fantastic and sure rings a bell for me!  Nick Maclean's compositions and renditions of Herbie's stuff is of the highest standard.  Bring them to Montreal please!”
-- Richard Therien, CKVL 101.1 FM (Montreal, Canada)

"Pianist and composer Nick Maclean, 26 years old at the time of this recording, is in very much the spirit of Hancock, which is to say that this album is very much about Maclean's artistic voice (and those of his carefully chosen colleagues)... inspired by Hancock while also presenting a highly individual and distinct evolution from the source material."
-- Dave Restivo, Canadian Jazz piano giant (Toronto, Canada)
 


About NICK MACLEAN QUARTET:

This contemplative and often thrilling quartet's explorations of modern, original repertoire is led by a fast-rising star in Canada's jazz piano community, 8x Global Music Award winner NICK MACLEAN.  Formed in 2016, Maclean's foursome delivers jazz between the two poles of thoughtful introspection and powerhouse conveyance, taking influences from Herbie Hancock's primordial 1960's Blue Note era recordings, while paying tribute to some of the greatest improvisers in jazz history.

Maclean’s quartet is frequently lauded for the strength of their collective improvisatory vision and heavily features one of Canada’s most provocative improvising trumpet players – BROWNMAN ALI, heralded as “Canada’s preeminent jazz trumpet player” by New York City’s Village Voice. Recognized as an internationally acclaimed jazz iconoclast, he currently splits his time between Brooklyn, NY & Toronto, Canada and is a 2x National Jazz Award winner. This jazz veteran is best known globally as the last trumpet player with the legendary jazz-hip-hop group GURU’s JAZZMATAZZ, having replaced Donald Byrd in that seminal ensemble. Ali & Maclean stand shoulder to shoulder with two of Toronto’s top-tier rhythm section 20-somethings: BEN DUFF on bass and JACOB WUTZKE on drums. The synergy of the 4 is always palpable in concert.

Repeatedly regarded as a modern take on the ferocious and hard-swinging post-bop era, the group has toured both across Canada and internationally, having been featured in numerous festivals and concert series including the Regina Jazz Society (Canada), the Altrincham Jazz Fest (UK), the Southport Jazz Fest (UK) and multiple appearances at the Toronto Jazz Fest both as a featured ensemble and an often requested backing band. In addition to their original material, the ensemble has also mounted several popular tribute series to jazz masters including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Clark Terry & Cole Porter.

The quartet’s debut 11-track full-length album “Rites Of Ascension” features 6 Maclean-penned compositions, 1 Brownman original and 4 re-imagined Herbie Hancock classics, all recorded at the renowned Canterbury Studios in Toronto.  Produced by Brownman Ali, this debut disk was released on October 31st, 2017 and was nominated for CJSF’s ‘2018 Julian Award of Excellence’, it won 3 ‘Gold’ Global Music Awards in the ‘jazz’, 'band’, and 'album’ categories, and was featured as one of the Global Music Awards’ 'Top 5 Albums of Spring 2018’.

The group is touring the material from ther highly anticipated upcoming 2nd studio album 'Convergence’, which will feature 7 Maclean-penned compositions, 1 Brownman original and 3 re-imagined Herbie Hancock classics, all recorded at the nenowned Revolution Studios in Toronto.  Produced by Brownman Ali, this disc is slated for release on Browntasauras Records in 2023, not long after this tour concludes!

About Bandleader NICK MACLEAN:

Born in Ottawa, and now based in Toronto NICK MACLEAN is the winner of 8 Global Music Awards as well as a Toronto Independent Music Award, and has quickly become one of the most in demand piano players in that city’s bustling jazz scene. Nick received his Bachelors of Music from Humber College in 2013, having studied with David Restivo, Bernie Senensky and Nancy Walker. He then went on to do a Masters in Jazz Performance at the University of Toronto researching synthesizer pedagogy while studying under David Occhipinti, Andrew Downing, Chris Donnelly and David Braid. Braid in particular had an enormous influence on how Maclean approaches playing and composing especially as it relates to solo piano performance. Also among his list of mentors Nick has studied and performed with "Canada's pre-eminent jazz trumpet player" (NYC Village Voice), the highly decorated Brownman Ali who signed Maclean to his Brooklyn-based jazz label Browntasauras Records in 2016 and later brought him on board as a label manager. Additional musical influences include the likes of Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Brad Meldau, Weather Report, Branford Marsalis Quartet, Hiromi Uehara, Art Tatum, Miles Davis, Avishai Cohen (bass), Vijay Iyer, and Brian Blade. Maclean leads two award-winning groups who've received international critical acclaim - the groove-based, all-original, eclectic electric-jazz project SNAGGLE, who's 2016 release THE LONG SLOG received 3 'Gold' Global Music Awards and a Toronto Independent Music Award, as well as the exploratory, post-bop influenced modern jazz ensemble NICK MACLEAN QUARTET who's 2017 release RITES OF ASCENSION was awarded 3 Gold Global Music Awards and has performed tours across Canada and internationally. His SOLO PIANO work is his introspective jazz project who's spirit draws influences from the contemplative and thoughtful stylings of jazz piano greats like Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett and Brad Mehldau. His 2021 double-disc solo piano release CAN YOU HEAR ME? won 2 Global Music Awards and went to #7 in the Canadian national jazz charts. The future is bright for this young visionary as he continues his upward ascent in jazz artforms of all shapes and sizes.

The label is not only a home to all 8 of Brownman's own ensembles, but now looks to sign the hottest 20-somethings in jazz.  The Browntasauras roster includes the CRUZAO, BROWNMAN ELECTRYC TRIO, GRUVASYLUM, ARECIBO, NICK MACLEAN QUARTET, NICK MACLEAN - SOLO PIANO, SNAGGLE, MODUS FACTOR, ALI BROS, JASON WILSON & DIVISION ONE and CHELSEA MCBRIDE'S SOCIALIST NIGHT SCHOOL.  Now, using the label as a breeding ground for new and visionary talent in the modern jazz realm, Browntasauras and Brownman himself are widely regarded as vanguards for the evolution of Jazz in Canada.
