MUSIC OF WAYNE SHORTER FOR BRASS
w/Tom Varner, Thomas Marriott and Dave Marriott
TULA’S JAZZ CLUB
2214 2nd Ave, Seattle
from Tom Varner:
Tom Varner, Thomas Marriott, David Marriott: The Wayne’ing Brass (New Looks at the Music of Wayne Shorter, with a brass trio–trumpet, horn, trombone, with piano, bass, and drums). With Bill Anschell, piano, Phil Sparks, bass, and Matt Jorgensen, drums.
I have always loved the soulful, intelligent, and searching music of Wayne Shorter, from his three-horn writing for Art Blakey to his more recent projects such as “Alegria.” I’m really excited that the David and Thomas Marriott will join me on an “all-brass Shorter celebration,” and I’m sure that the crack rhythm section of Anschell, Sparks, and Jorgensen will UP the party and keep us honest. A big thanks to David M. for providing the lion’s share of the charts. I haven’t played with a tpt/bone/horn sextet since moving to Seattle in ’05, and I LOVE this sound. Come on over and join us at Tula’s this Saturday, July 24!
