Seattle Composers’ Salon Returns!

An evening of music and discussion curated by Tom Baker with Seattle composers Ha-Yang Kim, Neil Welch, Kaley Lane Eaton, Blake Degraw, Lily Shabbabi, Liam Hardison.

Earshot: Rosetta Trio
Sat. Mar. 2, 8 PM; $15, $13, $10 online/at door

Earshot Jazz is pleased to present Brooklyn bassist Stephan Crump and his Rosetta Trio, a “string ensemble for the new century” with Liberty Ellman on acoustic guitar and Jamie Fox on electric guitar. The lack of drums is unexpected, and the ensemble embraces the rhythmic flexibility and challenges it presents. The result is a sound that sits within the liminal space of jazz, avant-garde, and contemporary folk.

Fri. 3/8 – Morsel Trio led by pianist Steven Damouni performs contemporary piano trios by Charles Corey, Luke Fitzpatrick, Kaija Saariaho, and Daniel Webbon

Sat. 3/9 – Seattle Modern Orchestra celebrates flutist, compsoer and conductor Robert Aitken, with works by Aitken, Takemitsu, Xenakis, and Brian Cherney
