SEATTLE DRUM SCHOOL: Cornish Jazz Composers Ensemble
from Earshot Jazz: Just about every jazz composer in Seattle has studied with, or worked with someone who has studied with, or lead bands with somebody who has studied with Jim Knapp. Knapp developed the revered jazz program at Cornish that releases bright doe-eyed young musicians into local clubs every year, and his signature chord structures and distinct harmonies are emulated throughout the Puget Sound. Tonight, Knapp brings his newest batch of young Monks, Minguses, and Ellingtons to the Seattle Drum School (North Seattle) to present their works. Featured performers include Courtney Cutchins, Clark Gibson, Gabriel Burbano, Jacob Stickney, Dick Valentine, Evan McPherson, Joshua Halbert and Joe Mascorella. Seattle Drum School (12510 15th Ave NE), 8:00 pm: $10.
