Malcolm Aiken will be performing music from his new album Paper Star (TrebleFive Records), joined by drummer Cam Stephens, bassist Joseph Lubinksy-Mast and pianist Bill Sample.

His debut full-length album, Paper Star showcases Malcolm Aiken’s lyrical trumpet sound with a collection of original compositions and several interpretations of jazz and classical standards. Described as an “impressive and gorgeously recorded release” (The Province), Malcolm Aiken calls the album “a fusion of musical textures, bringing together all my influences as a musician – from the smoky jazz club, Cuban concert hall, to the symphony orchestra.”

Don’t miss this exciting chance to see Malcolm Aiken play his first solo appearance in West Vancouver during this premier summer music event! Performance begins at 7:30pm.
