TULA’S JAZZ CLUB: Chris Mccarthy Trio with D’Vonne Lewis and Nate Parker
2214 2nd Ave, Seattle, 206-443-4221, 7:30pm
from Earshot Jazz: An absolute Earshot Jazz pick of the month: Chris McCarthy is a young pianist, still a senior at Roosevelt High School, astonishing some of the musicians around town. He’s a blast to play with it sounds like. Rooselvelt band director Scott Brown says, “He’s a guy that works so hard. He totally takes it over the top.” Add the dynamic D’vonne Lewis, a drummer not without a sense of humor behind his playing, and Nate Parker, a strong bass player sometimes in the camp of un-amplified acoustic players, and you’ve got a witty and responsive trio capable of spontaneous creation deep within the jazz language. No two renditions will be the same. Give a listen at They’re at Tula’s on January 23, 7:30pm. Admission is $10.
