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.

This Week At The Royal Room
Monday June 20th Father Daughter/ The Salute Sessions
7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm: Father Daughter
Grex - "Grex has been called "essential current-and-future listening" (Tiny Mix Tapes) and "true genre-warping music" (KFJC). Grex is not just "eclectic"--it synthesizes all of its influences into a brand of "art rock" that is truly unique. The band's fun, endlessly surprising sound draws from psychedelic pop/rock (Jimi Hendrix, Cream), alternative rock (Sonic Youth, The Pixies), and modern jazz (Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane). "
Grex's website

Derek M. Johnson - "Derek M Johnson is a musician and artist from Olympia, WA where he was raised. Primarily he plays the acoustic/electric cello in non-traditional and improvisational settings often as a soundtrack to a hand-made, direct animation slide show of his own creation." (Also, he is a Bad ass who can eat more hamburgers than you)

Fang Chia - Fang Chia is an experimental jazz-rock group from Tacoma, WA. The band’s four core members all studied music at the University of Puget Sound and have been playing together for the past eight years. As former members of The Warner House Cat and Electric Minge, their shared musical background is rooted in grit and improvisation. The band’s mission statement has always been to blur the lines between genres and constantly expand in all directions.

Tuesday June 21st Elnah Jordan/ Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio
7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm: Elnah Jordan
Elnah Jordan is a well seasoned performer and vocalist who commenced her career in the streets of San Francisco. Her transition from a street performer to the clubs was expeditious to say the least. San Francisco loved her and rewarded her with a nomination and placement as 1983 Jazz Vocalist of the year. Elnah performed the role of the legendary Bessie Smith for 2-1/2 years in “The Evolution of the Blues” written and produced by Jon Hendricks of the scat team of Lamburgh, Hendricks and Ross. Later she starred in “Street Dreams” an Off Broadway musical drama which afforded the prestigious Cabaret Gold awards for her performance. She then studied under and worked with Jules Broussard, a very well known sax player. To add to her credits, Elnah has had the honor to open for Gil Scott Heron and Bobby Blue Bland in the San Francisco Club forum.

Elnah moved to the Seattle area in the early nineties, which landed well for re-introduction of her roots in gospel music. The very essence of her inspiration.
