UVic’s Faculty Concert Series presents trumpeter Patrick Boyle with guests Tom Vickery (piano), Don Cox (double bass), and Morgan Childs (drums).

Celebrate the musical legacy of the great West Coast trumpeter and singer Chet Baker, who would have turned 90 this year. Cool jazz often refers to a style performed by jazz musicians in California in the '50s and early '60s. As opposed to the harder edged sound popular on the East Coast during that time, this cooler West Coast sound was more lyrical and soft. Let “trumpet personality” Patrick Boyle and Victoria veteran pianist Tom Vickery take you on a journey through the fascinating world Baker lived in.
