Folklife Festival is this weekend. In addition there is a lot of great jazz music which will hopefully keep the rain away.

Ron Carter’s Golden Striker Trio
featuring Russell Malone and Mulgrew Miller is at Jazz Alley all weekend.

Thomas Marriott will be in residency at The New Orleans performing tonight with his quartet and on Sunday night with a Tribute to Art Blakey (this show is filling up fast so call 206-622-2563 to make a reservation).

This weekend at Tula’s features the Katie King Quartet (tonight) and Susan Pascal’s Quartet (Saturday).

This Sunday is also the monthly performance of WACO at Tost (513 N. 36th St in Fremont). The show begins at 8:00pm and is only $5.00.

Monday, May 31, features two big shows. Lucid’s I/O Jazz Awards take over Benaroya Hall and the group Tunnel Six is performing at Tula’s Jazz Club.
