from The Seattle Times:

Seattle bassist extraordinaire and Cornish jazz professor Chuck Deardorf, equally at home on acoustic and electric models, celebrates the release of his splendid, swinging and thoughtful album, “Transparence” (Origin), one of the top local releases of the year. Deardorf, who recently had a successful kidney transplant, is back in action, much to the relief of the Seattle jazz community. He is joined by Seattle saxophonist Mark Taylor and Los Angeles-based guitarist Bruce Forman.

8 p.m. Saturday, Poncho Concert Theatre, 710 E. Roy St., Seattle; $10-$20 (206-726-5030 or
