Cry & Roar V: Celebrating five years of Racer Sessions

Posted 18 January, 2015 in Seattle Jazz - Comments Off comments

Cry & Roar V: Celebrating five years of Racer Sessions
January 23-25, 2015
Cafe Racer – 5828 Roosevelt Way NE Seattle, WA 98105
All shows 8:00pm
$5-15 suggested donation

The title “Cry & Roar” is a tribute to the memory of baritone saxophonist Andrew Carrico, a regular Racer Sessions participant who died tragically in September of 2012. The loss of Andrew’s life occurred not long after the shooting at Cafe Racer that previous summer; another wound for an already enormously grief-stricken community. Utterly unique and self-aware, Andrew once described his sound on the saxophone as a cross between a cry and a roar. For 5 years Table & Chairs and Racer Sessions have provided one-of-a-kind artists like Andrew a platform to freely express themselves. “Cry & Roar” is dedicated to this ever-expanding community.

Earshot Jazz Kicks Off the Year with Three Special Concert Presentations

Posted 16 January, 2015 in Seattle Jazz - Comments Off comments

On Saturday, January 17, at PONCHO Concert Hall at Cornish College of the Arts, the versatile Norwegian percussionist Thomas Strønen joins British saxophonist Iain Ballamy in the duo FOOD. The duo mixes instrumental virtuosity with electronics and improvisation. The BBC calls FOOD, “a magical hybrid of technology and improvisation, Europe and America, ambience and dance.”

In recognition of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, which is traditionally observed as a day of service, Earshot Jazz will hold a FOOD Drive in the PONCHO Concert Hall lobby. Attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable canned or boxed food item, and will receive a $5 discount on admission.

On Sunday, January 25, at PONCHO Concert Hall at Cornish College of the Arts tenor saxophonist Ben Wendel brings his new quartet to Seattle which includes some of the most exciting younger artists today—a startling demonstration of exactly why jazz is alive and thriving right now. Pianist Taylor Eigsti, bassist Harish Raghavan, and drummer Eric Harland join Wendel. Though all of the members of this quartet perform and record with each other regularly, this will be their first tour as a quartet.

On Sunday, February 8, at PONCHO Concert Hall the trio Thumbscrew, a band consisting of three well-established leaders on the new jazz/new music scene, present new music created specifically for this ensemble. The “three-composer trio” includes Mary Halvorson on guitar, Michael Formanek on double bass, and Tomas Fujiwara drums.

Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets or 1-800-838-3006. General Adult tickets are $16 for FOOD, $18 for Ben Wendel Quartet, and $16 for Thumbscrew. Half-price tickets are available for students, veterans, and active military, and $2 discounts are available for Earshot members and senior citizens (60+).

For more information, contact Earshot Jazz at 206-547-6763 or go online at www.earshot.org.

Nels Cline and Julian Lage, at the Royal Room Jan. 13

Posted 10 January, 2015 in Seattle Jazz - Comments Off comments

from The Seattle Times:

Two of the most creative guitarists in jazz, from two generations, team up for an open-ended romp at the Royal Room on Tuesday: Veteran Nels Cline, 58, a polymath familiar to broad audiences from his work with Wilco, Thurston Moore and Scott Amendola; and Julian Lage, the 27-year-old phenom introduced a few years back by vibist Gary Burton. The pair recently released the aptly titled “Room,” a string of free-ish improvisations that leave lots of space between the lines, including the conspiratorial “Whispers From Eve,” reverb-laden “Freesia/The Bond” and sitar-inspired “Calder.” Though the album overall feels a bit precious and abstract, odds are these guys will be more lively on stage than in the studio. Besides, my colleagues in the monthly Down Beat magazine feature, The Hot Box, all disagreed with me. Album ratings aside, I’ll definitely be checking these guys out live, and so should you.

7 and 9 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 13, at the Royal Room, Seattle; $20.

NY Times: Song and Daughter Inspire Plans to Celebrate People With Disabilities

Posted 5 January, 2015 in Seattle Jazz - Comments Off comments

For those in Seattle who know pianist Mike LeDonne, check out today’s article in the New York Times.

In July, a month after the Gay Pride March is scheduled to unfold, a different kind of pride procession is set to commence: the Disability Pride NYC parade.

The impetus behind the inaugural march, which organizers call the first of its kind in New York City, might seem unlikely: the jazz pianist Mike LeDonne.

Mr. LeDonne, a fixture on the city’s jazz scene for decades, said he has been working for several years to create an annual Disability Pride Day and parade to shine a spotlight on people with mental and physical disabilities.

“Actually, she’s the reason for the parade,” said Mr. LeDonne, 58, pointing to his daughter, Mary, 10, inside their apartment in Hell’s Kitchen. She was on the floor, cradling a musical toy, and repeatedly pressing its buttons to hear a variety of tinny melodies.

Mary was born with Prader-Willi syndrome, a genetic disorder that has left her developmentally disabled and without speech. She is legally blind and often uses a wheelchair.
