Ryan Burns, Geoff Harper and Matt Cameron performing at Bonnaroo.

A number of Seattle jazz musicians have been performing outside the Northwest recently.

Pianist Ryan Burns and bassist Geoff Harper performed two sets at Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN, with the trio Harrybu McCage which also features Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron.

Upon returning to Seattle, Burns and Harper then headed off to Boise, ID, for the Gene Harris Jazz Festival performing with Thomas Marriott‘s Willie Nelson Project (which also featured Mark Taylor and Matt Jorgensen). Jay Thomas, Gail Pettis, Bill Anschell and John Bishop also performed at the Gene Harris Jazz Festival as well.

Saxophonist Richard Cole just returned from a short tour with the legendary Dr. John. Cole’s travels included performances at the Chateau Ste. Michelle winery in Woodinville, The Playboy Jazz Festival in Hollywood and a stop in Portland, OR.
