Coat Cook Trio delivers inspired music

Saxophonist/composer Coat Cooke is a long-standing member of Vancouver’s improvised music community. A lyrical and inventive player, he is the founder and leader of the acclaimed NOW Orchestra. His collaborations include work with George Lewis, Wadada Leo Smith, Roscoe Mitchell, Butch Morris, and Marilyn Crispell.

Cooke’s trio is a hard-hitting and interactive unit boasting three of Vancouver’s finest improvisers. Bassist Tommy Babin is a recent arrival from Montréal who is making an impact on the local scene. Drummer Kenton Loewen is an integral member of the local music scene and also plays in punk and alternative groups. The band has recently released a CD called Up Down Down Up (Cellar Live).
