Gene Argel is a native of the Pacific Northwest, and was a much loved fixture and “monster player” on the Seattle Jazz scene until his move to Hawaii in 1980. He dazzles his audiences with his jazz, blues, and Latin rhythms. Jay Thomas, Seattle’s ever-present mutil-instrumentalist post-bopper, especially remembers his funky earthy B3 inflections. Gene has played with a number of talented artists such as Gabe Balthazar, Joe Henderson, Henry Allen, Emil Richards, Branford Marsalis, Michael Brecker, Bill Evans and George Benson. Add to the mix some new friends with “funky drummer” Greg Williamson and the bassal support of re-bopper Chuck Kistler. Might there be a recording in process?
Sushi master Hiroshi and his gang prepare a full menu of Japanese cuisine that is fresh, tasty, and full of flavor – all matched with some very special sake and beverages (try the plumb wine) Favored by local Japanese and music lovers, Hiroshi’s has been featuring live jazz on Friday nights for over three years – presented by the Pony Boy Records stable of artists. Come by for some fine food, and see who will be sitting in with the band – Fridays have become a ‘happening’ on Eastlake!
