Jazz Port Townsend: a great getaway

from The Seattle Times:

Jazz Port Townsend, which gets under way Thursday (July 23), has a different feel from other festivals, probably because its final weekend is the culmination of a weeklong workshop.

That means the crowd in Port Townsend and out at Fort Worden is full of aspiring young musicians, and their parents, plus other fans who are really listening to the music.

Fold that attentiveness into three nights of rolling performances in intimate venues, concerts in a grand pavilion with views out its doors of evergreen trees and sky, a pleasantly salty sea breeze and PT’s gingerbread Victorian B&Bs, and you have the elements of a great jazz getaway.

If you can’t make the ferry crossing next weekend, note that [Steve] Wilson is offering Seattleites a sneak preview (with a homegrown quintet including pianist Marc Seales and drummer Matt Jorgensen) Friday and Saturday, July 17-18, at Tula’s (206-443-4221 or tulas.com).

Gene-Argel

Gene Argel at Tula’s tonight

Pianist Gene Argel returns home to Seattle this weekend for a series of shows in support of his new CD on Origin Records, Luminescent.

Thursday, July 9 – Tula’s Jazz Club
2214 Second Ave, Seattle, 7:30pm

Friday, July 10 – Boxley’s
101 W North Bend Way, North Bend, 7:00pm

About his new CD:
A Tacoma native, pianist Gene Argel left the Northwest in his early 20s to gig in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and points west, including the island of Maui, where he’s lived since 1982. In this big-hearted outing, Gene returned to Seattle to join old friends for his recording debut as a leader. They create music that is joyful, soulful and funky, as heard on Jay Thomas’ “Baby Gator,” two beautiful tunes from his long time Maui collaborator, guitarist Shiro Mori, and compositions inspired by Gene’s family heritage – “Annette,” for Metlakatla, a Tsimpshian community in British Columbia, and “Haida Welcome Song,” Gene’s arrangement of an age-old chant. A beloved figure in Hawaiian Island and Northwest music communities for four decades, this debut is a long time coming.

Seattle Times: Antonio Sanchez beats it to Jazz Alley

from The Seattle Times:

Did you see this year’s Oscar-winning film “Birdman”?

If so, you probably noticed that the score was almost entirely percussion.

All those anxiety-producing clicks and free-jazz pyrotechnics were created by one of the most brilliant drummers in jazz, four-time Grammy-winner Antonio Sanchez, who brings his quintet to Jazz Alley two nights starting Tuesday (June 30).

Mostly familiar to Pat Metheny fans, for whom he has played 15 years, Sanchez said in a phone interview from New York that “Birdman” director Alejandro González Iñárritu was specifically looking for a drum score.

But Sanchez’s current focus is his expansive, 100-minute plus, “The Meridian Suite,” which his Migration band recently issued on CD and will perform in its entirety each night at the Alley.

Continue reading at The Seattle Times.

Antonio Sanchez Migration
7:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, June 30 and July 1, at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley, 2033 Sixth Ave., Seattle; $28.50 (206-441-9729 or jazzalley.com).
