7pm: Jacob Zimmerman Quintet
1707 NW Market Street, Seattle,  206-789-1621
from Earshot Jazz: Jacob Zimmerman (alto sax), with Ray Larsen (trumpet), Gus Carns (piano), Mark Hunter (bass) and Greg Campbell (drums), in Zimmerman’s series of first Thursday monthlies, Egan’s Ballard Jam House, 7pm, performing classic bebop from the 40s and 50s –  Charlie Parker, Lee Konitz, Bud Powell, Dizzy Gillespie. Zimmerman emails that the group evinces a distinct and authentic rawness, often missing from the modern-day performance of familiar repertoire. How? Detail, people, detail a group sound and approach featuring transcribed arrangements. This is more than a sentimental repertory project. (Zimmerman is also at the Royal Room, March 27, with a birthday tribute to pianist Lennie Tristano.) Reserve at Eganâ’s at (206) 789-1621 or rese[email protected]. Admission is $10, $6 for students.
