Description

Within these covers lies a treasure trove of original compositions awaiting your enjoyment. Enhanced by personal recollections and photos, this is more than just a comprehensive jazz fake book, it's an artist's lifework that vibrates at the signature frequency of Mike Allen.




Spare, elegant, melodic, soaring, fierce-Mike Allen has arrived as the country's top jazz saxophonist. Echoes of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman and Joe Lovano resonate through Allen's work, but the Vancouver-based saxman has channeled them into a voice of his own, by turns soulful, intense, lush and dynamic.
