Join us Thursday, August 17 at Parliament Tavern for a night of improvisational jazz.
JIM KNODLE WITH GEBHART & SEMAN
“It’s like the music grabs me by the scruff of the neck and we’re gone.” Seattle stalwart Jim Knodle is well known for his encyclopedic knowledge of jazz history. This knowledge shines through in his melodic improvisational style. Jim joins forces with young lion Mike Gebhart and John Seman.
KEVIN NORTNESS & FRIENDS
Multi-instrumentalist, composer, teacher, philosopher, and general sweetheart, Kevin and friends will tug at your heart strings with some passionate musicianship. Don’t miss an up close chance to listen to one of Seattle’s hidden gems.
Tightrope fearlessly walks between order and chaos, combining improvisation with composition in unusual ways. Christian Pincock (valve trombone and custom electronics) and friends perform this daring feat with loose groove-driven movements, ambient interludes and routines of curiously-shifting harmonies using original material, jazz standards and more as supports for their highwire act. Will they cross the chasm safely?
