Awards Ceremony
Sunday, March 20, 2011
Tula’s Nightclub and Restaurant, 7pm

The Golden Ear Awards recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements of the previous year in Seattle jazz. In the process, Seattle jazz fans and performers take stock of and show gratitude for the region’s rich, vibrant jazz ecology.

This annual gathering features performances by the Chuck Deardorf Quintet. Warren Rand (alto sax), Dawn Clement (piano), Dave Peterson (guitar), Gary Hobbs (drums), and Deardorf (bass) comprise the quintet.

Deardorf is a regular performer in the Seattle area; a full-time professor of bass at the Cornish College of the Arts, where he’s also served as music faculty chair; and a member of Centrum’s 2011 Jazz Port Townsend faculty.

His quintet warms up the Tula’s stage at 7pm, ahead of the presentation of awards at 8pm, followed by more music at 9:30pm. The emcee for the event is the celebrated jazz radio programmer Jim Wilke, who assures a genial, informed, and well-paced evening.

Admission: $15 general, $13 Earshot members and senior citizens, $7 working musicians and students. Call Tula’s Nightclub and Restaurant at (206) 443-4221 for reservations.
