Well, I don’t actually live in Seattle, but I used to, so that is why I visit this site daily. I still like to keep updated on the Seattle Jazz Scene.
I now live in Albuquerque, NM and recently attended an excellent show by the Ingrid Jensen Quartet at the Outpost Performance Space on 12/13/07. Ingrid plays trumpet and is from Vancouver Island, so I know a lot of you are familiar with her music. Ingrid was joined by Geoffrey Keezer, piano; Matt Brewer, bass; and Jon Wikan, drums.
Thanks for checking out the site and staying in touch with the Seattle scene!
Flora McGill!!! Saw her band perform at Egan’s last night with Josh Rawlings on keys, Evan Flory-Barnes on bass and Adam Kessler on drums. Flora is a fantastic singer and songwriter. Her songs are super-personal and emotional, and her band gives her just the right support to deliver her messages. She’s also a master and taking a topic from the audience and making up lyrics on the spot. The first one she did last night was called something like “Why did I go to that party last night” and was hilarious! And the band had hits and stops in all the right places. Sounded like a composed piece.
Check Flora out if you get the chance.
I was in Albuquerque in September to visit my parents and played at the Tuesday jam session at that Italian place on Central. Michael Glynn (a former Seattle-ite) was playing bass and my buddy from h.s., Paul Gonzales was playing trumpet. It was a really fun hang. I left ABQ in 1982 to go to college but I’m always happy to go back and see what’s going on there. There seems to be a nice local scene there these days. Cynthia Mullis
That must have been at Scalo in Nob Hill. They have a Tuesday night jam session every week, I believe. And, Paul Gonzales is also the host one day a week of the mid-day jazz show on KUNM.
