The 10 Best Albums of Tom Waits

Source: Happymag.

Born in the back of a cab in a parking lot at Pomona hospital in California, Tom Waits has confounded and allured listeners in equal parts from the moment he left the womb. From the dark, twisted romanticism of broken hearts and bad livers to the demented circus band of his later years Tom Waits has written some of the most compelling and artistically unique music to date.

Seattle Scene: January 30 – February 15, 2020

From Seattle’s Wayward Music Series:

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.

Mark Hilliard Wilson: The Presence of Absence
Thu. Jan. 30, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Guitarist Mark Hilliard Wilson plays solo pieces from the Wandelweiser collective: Guitarist Alone by Jürg Frey + Aeolian Island by Eva Maria Houben. The music on this program is a sharp contrast to the hyper-edited, compressed digital world that we are living through on our phones and computers….exploring the composers’ stillness and motion, the color of notes, and the lightness of silence between the sounds.

The Sound Ensemble: Come Together
Sat. Feb. 1, 7 PM; $20, $15 student/senior

The Sound Ensemble presents a musical celebration of our community and the ways in which we interact as a society. We will use music to explore the many ways we can support, love and affirm one another. Music by Sarah Bassingthwaighte, Dorothy Chang, Grace-Evangeline Mason, and the premiere of a new work by Assaf Shatil. There will be refreshments provided during intermission.

Fri. 2/7 – Seattle-bred, Brooklyn-based brass quartet The Westerlies return home to present Westerlies Fest 2020, featuring pianist, composer, and songwriter Robin Holcomb.

Sat. 2/8 – Improvised music by MIller-Adams-Skulley + others TBA

Thu. 2/13 – SCRAPE

Sat. 2/15 – Seattle Modern Orchestra plays Berio’s Sequenzas
