Tonight at the Seattle Jazz Showcase two cutting-edge groups are presented on an exciting double-bill:

Wednesday, October 17 beginning at 8:00pm

Thomas Marriott – trumpet; Mark Taylor – saxophone; Ryan Burns – keyboards; Geoff Harper – bass; Matt Jorgensen – drums

The award winning trumpeter Thomas Marriott presents reworkings of classic songs by the great american singer-songwriter Willie Nelson.

Taking material from many of Nelson’s hit songs and some lesser known tunes as well, Marriott has reinvented the material to create new and unique forms for improvisation and interplay.

Chris Stover – trombone; Stuart McDonald – saxophone; Ben Thomas – vibes; Jeff Norwood – bass; Matt Jorgensen – drums

More Zero is Chris Stover’s latest project, an exciting mix of modern jazz, drum-n-bass, and funk all within the framework of Chris’s unique compositional style. Favorably compared to Dave Holland’s band and John Hollenbeck’s Claudia Quartet, MORE ZERO features an eclectic mix of some truly world class improvising musicians.
