The Royal Room is hosting two must-see shows next week.
On Tuesday, September 11, saxophonist Steve Treseler will lead a group featuring NYC trumpeter Ingrid Jensen before heading into the studio to record his second album. The show will feature new music by Treseler and Jensen, music by Lee Konitz, Kenny Wheeler, and a cover of a song by Sunny Day Real Estate.
Rounding out the group will be Dawn Clement and Dan Kramlich on piano, Chris Spencer on guitar, Jon Hamar and Dean Schmidt on bass, Steve Korn on drums, and Meg Risso on cello.
The next night features a rare Seattle appearance by jazz drummer Brian Blade … only he won’t be playing drums. Blade is on tour in support of his Mama Rosa record which features him singing and playing guitar. He will be joined by Kelly Jones (vocal, guitar), Christopher Thomas (bass, vocal), Goffrey Moore (guitar) and Steve Nistor (drums). Make sure you mark your calendars and see this show!
