Monks Jazz presents Alex Coke 4tet

Decades into his career, woodwind-meister Alex Coke is a bona fide Austin jazz legend. A member of Dutch big band legacy Willem Breuker Kollektief for a decade, he co-led local bop quintet the Worthy Constituents and still serves in the late Tina Marsh’s long-running Creative Opportunity Orchestra. 2019 release Liminal #1 features a typically adventurous slate of Coke originals performed with ATX luminaries like bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, trombonist Michael St. Clair, and steel guitarist Bob Hoffnar. Backed here by guitarist Bruce Saunders, bass thrum James Suter, and drummer Masumi Jones, Coke and company will swing like mad. Per usual for Tuesday Monks gigs, the show benefits the Austin Jazz Society’s Project Safety Net, and while it will be livestreamed, a limited number of tickets for in-person astonishment exist. – Michael Toland
