Speak no evil - a Wayne Shorter Tribute 8.00pm tonight at The Ellington

The Carl Mackey Quartet + special guest Ricki Malet



Hot on the heels of releasing his long awaited debut album as leader, Carl Mackey returns to The Ellington stage to pay homage to the one and only Wayne Shorter.

The iconic saxophonist is celebrated as one of jazz’s greatest composers with many of his works earning ‘standard’ status.

Tonight Carl, with his formidable quartet, will pay tribute to the great man and his music with a focus on his iconic 60’s period as both bandleader and sideman.

The quartet will be joined by exciting young trumpeter Ricki Malet who is fast earning a reputation as one of the country’s finest.

This will also be your last chance to see Ben Vanderwal for some time before he flees our shores for the Big Apple.
