From Seattle’s Wayward Music Series:

Clarinet/Harp Quintet
Thu., May 15, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Beth Fleenor, Jenny Ziefel, Paul Hoskin, clarinets of various sizes; Carol Levin & Monica Schley, harp. An initial meeting, maybe the first performance of a clarinet/harp quintet, anywhere, anytime. The five come from drastically different backgrounds, yet, the common devotion is to one of spontaneously composed sonic creations.

Two Quartets: Music of Steve Lacy
Sat., May 17, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Join us for an evening of music by the great late saxophonist Steve Lacy, performed by two quartets. One quartet is led by Tom Varner and Eric Barber, featuring John Seman on bass and Tom Zgonc on drums. The second quartet is led by Kate Olson and Naomi Siegel.

Evan Flory-Barnes’ Infinity Upright!
Fri., May 16, 8 PM; $5 – 15 at the door

Infinity Upright! features the “Everything Music” of Evan Flory-Barnes, influenced by equal parts Mingus, Ravel, Björk and Dilla. Infinity Upright! leaves no stone unturned, from lush orchestra- tions to hard driving swing, free improvisation to head-nodding boom-bap anthems, original works to collaborations.
