New Album - Recording in July 2013!
I’m excited to let you know about a new duo album of mostly standard tunes I’ll be recording with pianist Miles Black in mid-July 2013. Stayed tuned for its release!
In the mean time have a listen to San Miguel (see “Featured Recordings”) from a recent MAQ recording session (with Miles Black-piano, Adam Thomas-bass, Julian MacDonough-drums). Recorded and mixed by Adam Thomas.read more >>
Director of Jazz at WWU
The Mike Allen Quartet (Miles Black-piano, Adam Thomas-bass, and Julian MacDonough-drums) is Western Washington University’s in-residence professional jazz ensemble. Bassist/vocalist Adam Thomas will be rejoining us this Fall after a year-long sabbatical and with that I’d like to extend a heart-felt THANK YOU to bassist Jodi Proznick for her fantastic bass playing in the MAQ and for the wonderful work she did with the students of WWU’s Jazz Area in 2012/13. With the addition of Chris Davis-trumpet as Guest Performer at WWU, the students, university and community are hearing our very best.read more >>
After 30 years with Selmer saxophones, I’m now playing and endorsing Yanagisawa saxophones: Tenor-991-S, Alto-991-S and Soprano-991-S models. Yanagisawa saxophones are beautifully built instruments that play in tune and encourage a full, personal sound. Check out my new Yanagisawa tenor on our new album Faculty Jazz Collective.read more >>
