THE CHAPEL: Bad Luck & Christina Valdes w/ Wayne Horvitz
Good Shepherd Center, 4649 Sunnyside Ave N, Seattle, 8:00pm
from Earshot: Bad Luck concludes a West Coast tour, in support of their second release, at the Chapel Performance Space in Wallingford. Two was released digitally on May 17 and on disc on June 7 on the new musician-founded label Table & Chairs. The recording is a two-disc release featuring original compositions by Neil Welch and Chris Icasiano that expand on Bad Luck’s unique approach and the duo’s remarkable ability to communicate acoustically. The second CD of the set uses modern electronics, live loops, and pedals on equal footing with their meticulously crafted natural sound. Bad Luck’s fierce energy and compositional style create a cohesive sonic quality made all the more effective by the duo’s personal commitment to their craft. Bad Luck’s eponymous debut album earned them Earshot Jazz’s Golden Ear Award for “Best Outside Jazz Group” in 2009 and was described as “one of the best Seattle jazz recordings in years.” They feature on a double bill with classical pianist Cristina Valdes and Wayne Horvitz, on piano and electronics.
