HIROSHI’S JAZZ AND SUSHI: Karen Shivers Welcomes Kobe Jazz Queen Chie Kobashi
from Earshot Jazz: For the past nine years Kobe, Japan, one of Seattle’s many sister cities, has sent the winner of their annual Jazz Vocal Queen Contest to appear in Seattle, and for the last four years Seattle has reciprocated the exchange by sending two vocalists to Japan. This week, the 2008 Kobe Jazz Vocal Queen, Chie Kobashi, makes her Seattle debut with two concerts. Tonight she sings alongside her Seattle counterpart, Karen Shivers, at Hiroshi’s and is backed by Bill Anschell on piano, Doug Miller on bass, and Greg Williamson on drums. On Monday night, she heads over to Jazz Alley for a solo engagement, where she will be joined by Randy Halberstadt on piano, Mark Ivester on drums, and Jeff Johnson on bass. Born in Amagasaki City, Hyogo in 1976, Kobashi grew up in Kobe. She started singing at the age of eight and began singing professionally in her early twenties. She has performed throughout Kobe, Osaka, and Tokyo, and in 2002 she received the World Scholarship Tour from Berklee College of Music. The show begins tonight at 7:30 pm at Hiroshi’s Restaurant (2501 Eastlake Ave E). There is no cover, but reservations are recommended. Monday night Kobashi takes the Jazz Alley stage (2033 6th Ave) at 7:30 pm, with doors opening at 6 pm. There is a suggested donation of $10 per adult and $5 for student and seniors to help support the Seattle Female Jazz Vocalist Audition program.
