There are jazz festivals at each end of the Salish Sea this week, from The American Classic Jazz Festival in Lacey to the Vancouver International Jazz Festival.

There’s also jazz in the Seattle area ranging from the ambitious Alchemy Project premiering original music by Sumi Tonooka, Erica Lindsay, Salim Washington, David Arend and Samantha Boshnack with Max Wood and Willem De Koch, playing at The Royal Room Sunday.

And the Danny Kolke Trio has invited eleven bass players to play at the trio’s regular Sunday night gig at Boxley’s in North Bend Sunday. Was Danny inspired by Joe Venuti?
