Friends of Nanaimo Jazz Society presents rising star, Jalen Baker on vibraphone, with Samuel Reid on piano Gabe Godoy on bass and Gavin Moolchan on drums. This show will also feature performances by the Wellington Jazz Academy.
Jalen Baker, born in Washington DC and raised in Houston TX, is a vibraphonist percussionist educator and composer whose early training involved both classical and jazz music. Jalen Baker is a strong authentic voice in jazz vibraphone building on the legacies of Stefon Harris Steve Nelson and Joe Locke while twisting the instrument’s idiosyncrasies to fit with his musical personality.
The Jalen Baker Quartet will take the stage at St. Andrew’s Unite Church – the perfect surrounding for their harmonious sounds.
