Isak Gaines, Jack Swiggett, & Level 2

7:00pm | Doors at 5:30pm

Seattle-born, New York-based saxophonist Isak Gaines joins piano prodigy Jack Swiggett and progressive dream-funk duo Level 2 (Janak Preston & Gabriel Stout) for a night of experimental grooves and improvisations.

Born and raised in Seattle, New York-based tenor saxophonist Isak Gaines was exposed to music at an early age. He began playing saxophone at age 10 after his grandfather first introduced him to Dexter Gordon. Ten years later, he has performed at New York's Jazz at Lincoln Center, Seattle's Paramount Theater, the Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, Italy, and Jazz À Vienne in Vienne, France, among other venues.

Although brought up in the straight-ahead jazz tradition, Isak also draws influence from rock, electronic, hip-hop, R&B, and other styles. Currently, he is taking classes at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York's Greenwich Village. He also performs with the New York Youth Symphony Jazz Band with whom he toured throughout Brazil in March 2016, and recently finished his first album, "Bits And Pieces."

Gard Nilssen’s Acoustic Unity // Bad Luck

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Gard Nilssen’s Acoustic Unity:
If you ask the names of the most prominent and sought after jazz- and improvised music drummers in Norway, you can be sure to find Gard Nilssen on that list. Anywhere you turn, he’s there, either as a sideman (Team Hegdal, Cortex, Lord Kelvin, Zanussi 5 or Susanne Sundfør) or leading and co-leading a good number of acclaimed groups (Bushman’s Revenge, Puma, sPacemoNkey or Astro Sonic), some going to the absolute frontier territories of jazz, rock and electric experimentalism. With “Firehouse”, he debuts a new duo entirely committed to unplugged music; Gard Nilssen ́s Acoustic Unity.

In the frontline is an astonishing revelation of a saxophone player, André Roligheten. Whether as half of the duo Albatrosh, or in the tighter context of the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, collaborating with the psych-rock band Motorpsycho, or in free communication with the likes of Axel Dörner, John Edwards and Paal Nilssen-Love, every player would envy his drive and capacity to instantaneously re-invent melody and rhythm while improvising.

Bad Luck: For over a decade the Seattle based duo Bad Luck (Neil Welch, saxophone/electronics and Chris Icasiano, drums) have pushed the boundaries of what it means to perform, create and move forward in the genre of modern jazz.

"Bad Luck chop up time and space into jagged, unpredictable shapes...like an asymmetrical avalanche.”
- The Stranger Magazine

“With four albums under their belt, Bad Luck has created an incredibly diverse array of music. They have developed a unique performative language together, sculpting compositions that use complex mnemonic techniques, and create "fearless, raw improvisations"
- Seattle Times

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

Tickets: $15 advance $18 DOS
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Featuring:
Wayne Horvitz - key

Bobby Previte - Drums

Alex Guy - Violin
Geoff Harper - Bass
Mike Stone - Drums

The Bobby Previte Trio:
Featuring:
Bobby Previte - Drums
Mike Gamble - Guitar
Fabian Rucker - Sax

Bobby Previte’s first stage appearance came in 1956 at the Niagara Falls Talent Show, where, guitar in hand, and adorned in an over-sized suit, he belted out a solo rendition of Elvis Presley’s ‘Hound Dog.’

Eight years later, thinking drumming might be a good way to get girls, he fashioned a bass drum from a rusted garbage can, a kick pedal from a wire coat hanger wedged between two pieces of linoleum and a rubber ball stuck on top, tom toms from upside-down trash bins, cymbals from aluminum pie plates suspended on plungers, and a box of loose junk for a snare – then practiced for a year in his dark basement with a lone spotlight shining on him before eventually starting a band, the “Devil’s Disciples.” But when they finally got a job at the church he was fired for not having ‘real’ drums. Seeking revenge, he took a job as a paperboy, saved every penny, and a year later bought the drum kit he still uses today in concerts all over the world.

Strolling in the East Village one bright afternoon, he peered inside a limo stuck in traffic (crosstown) and suddenly found himself face to face with Jimi Hendrix. Thinking fast, he unfurled the poster of Jimi he had fortunately just acquired, then looked on in astonishment as Hendrix smiled and flashed him the peace sign.

All the rest, as they say, is noise.

Casa de la Trova hosted by SuperSones ft. the Mochima Trio

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

SuperSones play the sublime music known as Son - the acoustic dance music of the Cuban countryside that inspired modern Salsa. Son is a unique blend of Spanish guitars and harmony, Afro-Cuban percussion and swing, call-and-response singing, and trumpet improvisation. From the 1930's in Havana to the present moment, Cuban septets like SuperSones have inspired people around the world to dance and ce...lebrate.

SuperSones represent this rich musical tradition with a wide range of classic and original songs in the many genres within the Son family: bolero, cha cha cha, guaracha, and son montuno among others. The group plays songs written by some of the greatest composers of Cuban popular music including Compay Segundo, Miguel Matamoros, Isaac Oviedo, and Arsenio Rodriguez. SuperSones recreate these songs with their own arrangements and improvisations to bring the Son alive in the Pacific Northwest. The group also regularly features original compositions firmly rooted in the Son tradition.

SuperSones will be hosting "La Casa de la Trova" at the Royal Room and feature a different guest band each month. This month features the Mochima Trio.

Jesse Myers: Living in America // Stacey Mastrian

7:30pm | Doors at 6:00pm

Jesse Myers brings a set of solo piano music by living American composers to the stage. Accessible, adventurous, uniquely American and urban— this program highlights the works of iconic minimalist composers as well as new music featuring acoustic piano and electronics. Myers has a strong interest in exploring the expanded possibilities of the piano. His recent concerts of John Cage’s Sonatas and Interludes for prepared piano have been featured on KingFM’s Second Inversion, Seattle Weekly, The Live Music Project, and were a part of The Stranger’s “Best Winter Concerts of 2017.” His recent work with the prepared piano has led to artist residencies at Cornish College of the Arts and Bowling Green State University in 2017.

Mad Rush - Philip Glass
Selected Etudes – Philip Glass
Hoyt-Schermerhorn – Christopher Cerrone
Orizzonte – Missy Mazzoli
Isabelle Eberhardt Dreams of Pianos – Missy Mazzoli
Piano Counterpoint – Steve Reich

“Manifestly courageous” (Boston Globe) soprano Stacey Mastrian performs works for voice with electronics and piano by two generations of American composers: the venerable Earle Brown, Morton Feldman, and Alvin Lucier, and the current generation—Mike Boyd, Stephen Lilly, Kristian Twombly, and Steve Wanna. As visually arresting as they are aurally, the pieces ask us to consider “What is a score?” and reveal the inner voices of the performer, from meditative to humorous and theatrical.

Binary Solo+: Works for solo voice with electronics and piano

Program:
For Ann from Folio II – Earle Brown
Becoming…again – Michael Boyd
Lost Love – Morton Feldman

Tickets: $17 adv/$20 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Locarno is the Latin project of JUNO Award winning musician, Tom Landa. Like him, the music is equal parts Mexican and Canadian. Tom was born and raised in Mexico City, and moved to Canada in his teens. In the mid nineties he formed the Folk Roots band, The Paperboys, who have been touring world-wide for over 20 years. Tom has always dabbled in Latin music, and in 2005 decided to immerse himself more into genre, and started working on material for an album. In 2006 he was awarded a Canada Council Grant to study traditional Mexican Music in Veracruz, Mexico. Tom spent his days learning the jarana (an 8 string guitar), and learning songs from the Son Jarocho repertoire. Upon his return to Canada, Tom started working on what would be Locarno’s debut CD.

Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Jim Kweskin is probably best known as a singer and bandleader. He also created one of the bedrock guitar styles of the folk revival, adapting the ragtime-blues fingerpicking of artists like Blind Boy Fuller to the more complex chords of pop and jazz. He has maintained a remarkably consistent musical vision since his jug band days, continuing to explore traditional folk and blues with the sophisticated sensibility of a jazz musician and jazz with the communal simplicity of a folk artist. He has recorded solo ventures, as a member of the U and I band, and with U and I bandmate Samoa Wilson, and continues to perform widely in various formats. In recent years he and Geoff Muldaur have often appeared as a duo, revisiting and expanding on their Jug Band repertoire.

Duffy Bishop is a force of nature. A powerful blues blaster, a sultry soul singer, a presence who connects with her audience in a deeply personal way be it in an intimate club or huge festival.

“Her band went on first and did a tune. Duffy watched from the back of the theater. The band struck up another tune and all of a sudden, this huge beautiful voice came out of nowhere. She was walking up the aisle, mic in hand, tall and glamorous, dressed to the nines, singing and greeting the members of the audience. By the time she got to the stage they were cheering...they were hers and she was theirs.” – Tom D’Antoni, Oregon Music News.

Hunter Gather // Sound Underground

7:00pm | Doors at 6:00pm

Sound Underground is a compact trio with an expansive imagination. Saxophonist David Leon, trumpeter Alec Aldred and guitarist Jonah Udall draw on a broad array of influences from Cool Jazz to Americana, to Bulgarian folklore and the avant-garde to distill a unique and deeply personal voice. Hailed by AllAboutJazz.com as “a fresh sound... uncluttered and open... capable of grabbing a listener's attention and holding it indefinitely,” Sound Underground steers through inventive textures far beyond the limits of their unconventional chamber instrumentation.

Sound Underground released its self-titled debut in 2014 with a tour of Eastern Europe, performing at major international jazz festivals in Bulgaria and Serbia. Now based in Miami and New York City, they have been on the rise ever since, touring on across the U.S. as well as returning to the continent. Their sophomore album Quiet Spaces was released in September 2016.

Hunter Gather is about exploring childhood homes out of which you've long since moved. And about that one Joanna Newsom song where she sings "why the long face?" and it makes you happy and very sad at the same time. And about singing - and yell-singing. And about making noise and sound with our bodies. And about the phrase "dancing in your head" which Ornette Coleman named one of his albums. And about America, sort of. And about the wordless nod between friends.

With threads of rock, jazz, americana, ambient soundscapes and world music, Hunter Gather forges their unique brand of emotionally charged progressive jazz.

Hopscotch

7:30pm | Doors at 6:00pm

HOPSCOTCH is the musical duo of singer/songwriter Jeanie Mishler and composer and pianist Charlie Hiestand. Along with standards from the Great American Songbook, they've collaborated with an accomplished collection of Seattle players to bring to life songs they've co-written and arranged. Their music offers up a rich variety of new jazz, drawing from swing, blues, latin, funk, and hip-hop.

Their 2014 debut album, HOPSCOTCH, received instant radio play at jazz stations across the country, including KKJZ, Los Angeles, CA, KSDS, San Diego, CA, WKGC, Panama City, FL, WJSU, Jackson, MS, KNIK, Anchorage, AK to name a few.

Influenced by bands like Pink Martini, both Jeanie and Charlie write songs that pay homage to the rich tradition of jazz song structure, with rhythms and harmonies that support rhyme schemes that make sense--nothing minimalist or reductive about them.

They've developed a sound that is simultaneously both retro and current with grooves that give them a fresh feel. "Hopscotch features the fluid vocal styling of the very talented Jean Mishler fronting an ensemble of Seattle's best players on a set of fresh poppy jazz infused with classic style." Rick J Bowen--Seattle Examiner.
