Tonight’s Seattle Jazz Showcase performance features two relatively new Seattle jazz groups, both of which have been creating a buzz lately.

8:00pm – Byron Vannoy’s Meridian

Drummer Byron Vannoy leads some of Seattle’s most creative musicians through his original music. The group features Byron Vannoy – drums; Chris Symer – bass; Kacey Evans – keyboards; Chris Spencer – guitar; Eric Barber – saxophones

9:30pm – Ziggurat Quartet
The Ziggurat Quartet features four innovative jazz improvisers performing all original compositions. A passion for rhythmic experimentation drives the ensemble’s complex original compositions; many of the pieces are deeply influenced by the rhythms of East Indian music, as well as jazz and contemporary chamber music. Coupled with strong improvising, the result is a mix of music that is engaging, spontaneous, and compelling. Members of the quartet bring personal voices and broad aesthetic horizons to the ensemble, together charting new directions for jazz quartet. The group features Eric Barber Рsaxophones; Bill Anschell Рpiano; Doug Miller Рbass; Byron Vannoy Рdrums
