Every Sunday, The Whistler and North Coast Brewing team up to present our favorite jazz artists at The Patron Saint of Jazz series. Trumpet player and composer Markus Rutz leads a new group tonight. Downbeat called his playing “a tuneful, rhythmically sly twist on mainstream jazz… Rutz has a big, dark tone and a fluid ease to his phrasing that makes him seems relaxed even when unleashing a volley of 16th notes.”
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.
