Seattle Scene: July 9-31, 2015

From Seattle’s Wayward Music Series:

Chapel Performance Space at Good Shepherd Center
4th Floor, 4649 Sunnyside Ave. N, Seattle 98103 (corner N 50th St. in Wallingford)
Every month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded presenters and artists offer ten concerts of adventurous music in an informal yet respectful all-ages setting: contemporary classical, free improvisation, the outer limits of jazz, electronic music, microtonal/new instruments, sound art, and other extraordinary sonic experiences.

Earshot: Triptet + Bloom
Thu. July 9, 8:00 PM; $5 – $15 in advance

Earshot’s juried series, Jazz: The Second Century, presents Seattle artists, selected by a peer panel, performing original work, in a concert setting. Triptet features Tom Baker on guitar, Greg Campbell on drums, and Michael Monhart on saxophone. Bloom is a new, acoustic quartet led by trumpeter/composer Brennan Carter, with Levi Gillis on tenor sax, Mark Hunter on bass, and Jarred Katz on drums.

A Consecutive Sequence
Sat. July 11, 8:00 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

A Consecutive Sequence is drummer Dio Jean-Baptiste and saxophonist Bryan Lineberry. They borrow elements from EDM, hip-hop, math metal, Coltrane and Shepp with an emphasis on evolving sonic textures, injecting simple and thoughtful musical ideas into loosely improvised formats to bridge the gap between the uncharted and the inescapably enjoyable.
