from Anton Schwartz:

Saturday, December 15, 8pm
Loft Concert (Seattle)
Greta Matassa (vocal)
Anton Schwartz (sax)
Clipper Anderson (bass)
A serious concert with a party vibe.

This concert features vocalist Greta Matassa in a particularly intimate setting. Greta is a dominating force in the jazz scene here in the Pacific Northwest and one of the most impressive vocalists on the national scene today. Her sound spans a huge range, as she moves with ease between muscular and delicate, innocent and world-weary, yielding intricate bebop one minute and earthy soul the next, all the while maintaining uncanny technique & control.

Joining Greta and me is bassist Clipper Anderson, Greta’s lifelong collaborator and another key player in the Seattle jazz scene. Clipper has worked with a long list of jazz greats including including Michael Brecker, Arturo Sandoval, Bucky Pizzarelli, Benny Golson, Phil Woods and Buddy DeFranco. The trio of vocal, sax and bass is extremely nimble, allowing us to react on a dime and head in unforeseen directions within each song.

Reservations are required. For more information and to reserve, visit
