The Doxas Brothers Quartet, feat. John Abercrombie and John Menegon

Over the last few years, The Cove has grown into a formidable venue
for not only homegrown, but  world class talent.  The popular Blues on
the Rideau Series going into it's 6th season, the 4th Annual
MUSICwestport Festival and the 13th year of Thursday Jazz Night  with
The Spencer Evans Trio featuring co-owners Jeff and Seamus Cowan have
contributed greatly to this venue's attraction.  With the musical
knowledge and expertise of the Cowan brothers being members of the
Westport Arts Council and trained musicians themselves, this
destination can only grow.

The Cowans honed their musical training in Montreal where they lived
for about 10 years studying at McGill University in the Jazz Program.
  They received training from some of the country's best players and
played along side some of the best up and comers as well.  Two of
those were Jim and Chet Doxas from Montreal whose family along with
father George Doxas have been fixtures of the Montreal scene for a few
decades.  On this date, Chet and Jim have brought together two
generations of musicians at the top of the jazz world with the common
thread being a devotion to great improvising. The group's repertoire
is comprised of original works from each band member and many of the
compositions are written specifically for this quartet. Together,
saxophonist Chet Doxas and drummer Jim Doxas  have established
international reputations as two of the most promising improvisors of
their generation, both in their early 30's. Bassist John Menegon's
credits read like the evolution of modern jazz. Menegon has performed
and recorded alongside Pat Metheny, Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano, and
Lee Konitz, to name very few. John Abercrombie's contribution to the
guitar and jazz music is undeniable. With an active career spanning
over 50 years, Abercrombie is an artist who at once embraces the jazz
tradition and creates it. His relationship with the record label ECM
has seen Abercrombie produce some of the most important jazz albums in
the last 30 years.

Show is $15 from 8-11pm.  Reservations are recommended. 1.888.268.3466 <> <>
