from Earshot: Multifaceted drummer Sean Hutchinson returns to Seattle for a hometown show on the Triple Door Mainstage (216 Union St.) on August 24. The show is in support of his debut jazz trio CD, Sean Hutchinson’s Still Life. Hutchinson is a product of the heralded Roosevelt High School jazz program; he is one in a long line of prodigious young musicians to make the coastal swing to the Big Apple. Making his home now in the fertile Brooklyn music scene, Hutchinson splits his time between leading his own innovative projects; touring with an array of jazz, indie and pop artists; and producing. Only 26, Hutchinson has launched an impressively diverse career, crossing over musical worlds to perform with jazz artists such as Maria Schneider, Dave Douglas, Shelly Berg, and Alan Pasqua to rock veterans Warren Haynes of the Allman Brothers, George Porter of the Meters, Michael Shrieve of Santana, Jerry Harrison of the Talking Heads and Greg Ginn of Black Flag. He also tours and records with contemporary pop outfits Francis and the Lights, Shenandoah and the Night, and 2AM Club. Hutchinson brings his New York trio to the Triple Door. The band features two of New York’s most revered musicians, both equally adept in the worlds of jazz and pop: Erik Deutsch on piano and Chris Tarry on electric bass. The 7:30pm show is all-ages; there is a $15 cover charge; www.tripledoor.com or 206-838-4333 for reservations.
