"One of Canada's leading saxophonists for over 25 years - Kirk's musical inquisitiveness seems to have no end. He is constantly pushing the envelope, searching for new ideas, new sounds!" - Lorne Lofsky

With piano great Harold Mabern in the mix, the night will be magical. This is the U.S. premiere of MacDonald's cricitally acclaimed release "Vista Obscura"! Come be part of the event!

As the Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola website touts: "Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola is proud to host the album release party of Kirk MacDonald's Vista Obscura, an album that just won a 2015 Juno Award (the "Canadian Grammy") for "Best Jazz Recording Solo Artist." It's a major feat, and expectations are high for this performance. The band is comprised of similarly prolific musicians, including Harold Mabern, Neil Swainson, and Andre White. The album features mostly originals, for which MacDonald is well known, plus two Coltrane compositions. The new compositions were written with this extraordinary band in mind and will appeal to jazz fans across the board."
