Rockin Teenage Combo/ Maurice and His Thing

10:00pm | Doors at 9:00pm

Rockin' Teenage Combo has been known for many years as a Jazz/Funk group with heavy use of odd-time signature grooves and convoluted arrangements. Nowadays, with band members scattered around the state, rehearsals are rare and so more and more they are required to call upon their skills in improvisation. As a result, things have become more streamlined with an emphasis on FUNK. Each member has a certain area of expertise as well. Dara is exploring the world of Flying Lotus, utilizing her mastery of chord voicings and texture to bring sexy back. PK is channeling his longtime devotion to Bootsy and holding grooves down, while paying tribute to Jaco by bringing fretless bass into the mix. Olli has been playing a lot of old-school Soul feels for years now, bringing to it his usual unusual perspective and fresh approaches to time-honored traditions. Expect a set of familiar grooves and brand-new sounds propelled by a band that's been playing together for over twenty years now.

To guarantee a good seat, please make your dinner reservation here

Acclaimed NYC-based electric guitarist and songwriter Leni Stern returns to Seattle with an all star quartet of bassist James Genus (SNL Band/Herbie Hancock), keyboardist Leo Genovese (Wayne Shorter/Esperanza Spalding) and griot master musician Senegalese percussionist Alioune Faye. Stern is celebrating the release of her newest album 'Dakar Suite', a journey into the roots of jazz and blues in Senegalese traditional rhythms.

Todd Clouser w/ Tarik Abouzied, Galen Clark & Damian Erskine plays Captain Beefheart and more.
Mexico City guitarist Todd Clouser (A Love Electric) will be joined by Tarik Abouzied (Happy Orchestra, Mctuff), Galen Clark (Trio Subtonic) and Damian Erskine to play shows in Seattle, Portland, Eugene & Ashland!

"Todd Clouser doesn't fit into any scene, and doesn't want to" says NPR.

Guitarist, poet, songwriter, Mexico City resident Todd Clouser, a genre-defying voice on the international creative music scene, sets out on a first of its kind tour across Asia, Europe, and the Americas performing the music of late great Captain Beefheart and his own music in intimate settings. The Clouser concert is a look into the mind of a young artist creating a legacy all his own in music’s history of evolution, though this time Clouser does so by looking back to carry us forward in a moving tribute to one of his heroes. “Captain Beefheart was of course unique and provocative and a character, but there is something heavier in his embrace of the surreal. Its the pulling of the curtain to reveal the circus we all know we live in“ says Clouser.

Earshot Jazz Presents: Cortex (Norway)/ The Thing (Norway)

6:00pm | Doors at 5:00pm - Cortex
8:30pm | Doors at 8:00pm - The Thing

Tickets: $15 for one show, $20 for both shows
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets.

Presented by Earshot Jazz

Opening is Cortex, a leading Norwegian quartet of Thomas Johansson (trumpet), Kristoffer Berre Alberts (sax), Ola Høyer (bass), and Gard Nilssen (drums), whose “avant-garde party music” has been praised for what critics have described as the sleek, muscular propulsion of its agile and robust high-velocity improvisations and tight ensemble playing. Terje Mosnes described the quartet on Jazzinorge as “original, organic changes between striking, almost naive melodics and super complex, but yet completely logical abstractions.” You can hear that for yourself on their Soundcloud page — or, better yet, at this Earshot Spring Series show.

The Thing is the real thing, built by three towering figures in European jazz — in fact, in jazz and its progeny, anywhere: Mats Gustafsson plays multiple saxophones with live electronics; Ingebrigt Håker Flaten in on bass; and Paal Nilssen-Love is on drums of a torrential variety.
