Tirelessly leading 7 unique ensembles of his own (including the internationally acclaimed BROWNMAN ELECTRYC TRIO, and the award-winning CRUZAO latin-jazz quintet), when not in high demand in the studio world he is considered to be one of the most unique and provocative improvising trumpet players on the scene today and is widely regarded as a vanguard for the evolution of Jazz in Canada. A highly decorated player, his accolades include several National Jazz Awards, a CBC Galaxie Rising Star award, a SOCAN composers award, a Toronto Independent Music Award, NOW magazine naming him "Jazz Artist of the Year", CBC Radio Canada citing him as "one of the most recorded trumpet player in Canadian history", an induction into the WHO'S WHO IN BLACK CANADA and is listed by Air Canada as one of the "top 10 reasons to visit Toronto". / Facebook / MySpace / YouTube -- See Brownman playing Bye Bye Blackbird on YouTube: -- BROWNMAN LOVE QUARTET is :: Brownman Ali - trumpet / flugelhorn | :: Dave Restivo - piano | :: Mark Cashion - bass :: Jeff Halischuk - drums -- MENU - Special for Valentine's Day =============================================== Starter Bread and Feature Dip =============================================== Appetizer Wild Mushroom Cappuccino with Truffle Foam & Sumac Dust - or - Beet Trio of Golden, Red and Candy Cane beets, Sweet and Bitter Greens, Shaved Goat Cheese, Pistachio, Honey Cider Vinaigrette - or - Shrimp and Avocado Rolls with Pineapple Cranberry Chutney =============================================== Main Mediterranean Seafood Cioppino with Saffron and Fennel - or - Grilled Rib Eye steak with bittersweet Chocolate Port Reduction - or - Roast Cornish Hen in Honey Ginger and Pomegranate sauce - or - Spinach and Ricotta Raviolini, Wild Mushroom, Cherry Tomato, Roast Garlic and Truffle Cream =============================================== Dessert Decadent Dessert Platter ===============================================
