Alex Coke Quartet Add Video

Alex Coke is a jazz saxophonist, flutist and composer. He graduated with his B.A. from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1976, with emphasis on flute performance. An original member of the Austin-based Creative Opportunity Orchestra, Coke performed with Tina Marsh in various formations for over 25 years. Before moving to Amsterdam in the early's he received several local Austin awards. From 1990-2000 and then again in 2011-2015, he toured and recorded with the internationally renowned Dutch jazz group, the Willem Breuker Kollektief. An improvisor at heart, Coke's eclectic attitude has led him to explore everything from Be-Bop to Huddie Ledbetter. His flute studies have ranged from Eric Dolphy to Indian ragas on the bamboo flute to extended flute techniques such as those researched by Robert Dick, Ann LaBerge and Wil Offermans. Coke's multifarious bands include the Live Action Brass Band, the Leadbelly Legacy Band, NewTexas Swing, and his post-bop quintet, The Worthy Constituents, a collaboration with longtime partner, pianist Rich Harney and with Martin Banks on trumpet. Alex continues to split his time between Europe and Austin. This streaming event will be his first experience to play with a quartet since returning to Austin in March.
