May 19th - John Allmark Super Jazz Octet

The John Allmark Jazz Orchestra has been at the forefront of Rhode Island Jazz for almost 29 years now. During that time it has deservedly earned a reputation as one of the countries finest jazz ensembles. 
The band still performs bi-monthly at the Met Cafe in Pawtucket but it's legacy continues to grow with the formation of the John Allmark Super Jazz Octet in 2017. 
The Octet gives British trumpeter John Allmark a new platform to showcase his writing and arranging skills whilst featuring an all-star line-up of the very best jazz musicians that New England has to offer. 
In addition to Allmark the May 19th personnel brings together Bob Bowlby, Bill Vint and Austin Yancy on saxophones, Angel Subero-trombone, Eugene Maslov-piano, Brian Rizzuto-bass and Vinny Pagano on drums. 
Askew is thrilled to add this powerhouse unit to our line-up and invites you to be a part of what promises to be a very exciting and memorable evening.
