Every Sunday, The Whistler and North Coast Brewing team up to present our favorite jazz artists at The Patron Saint of Jazz series.
Drummer Clif Wallace is of a generation of jazz musicians who possess the chops to play a funk/rock anthem such as “Maggot Brain,” as well as a hard-bop standards such as “Moanin.’” He approaches music without the Hamlet-like “to fuse or not to fuse” angst that bedeviled earlier generations of jazz performers.
North Coast Brewing is a proud supporter of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. For every case of Brother Thelonious Belgian Style Abbey Ale sold, North Coast Brewing makes a contribution to the Institute in support of jazz education. To date they’ve contributed over one million dollars to the Institute.
