From the Seattle Times:
Its Spring Series 2009, which puts together prominent, avant-garde, European and American musicians, begins tonight with a performance at the Seattle Asian Art Museum by the Dutch saxophonist Ab Baars and his trio. Joining him will be Chicago saxophonist Ken Vandermark, known for his intricate compositions and multilayered improvisation.
The saxophone-dominated series continues Sunday night with a performance at the Triple Door by American alto saxophonist Steve Coleman and his group Five Elements (see accompanying story).
The final two concerts come at the end of the month: German saxophonist Peter Brotzmann and his trio will play April 28 with Americans Eric Revis (Branford Marsalis’ longtime bass player) and drummer Nasheet Waits. Then Norwegian saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and his trio The Thing will perform at Cornish College of the Arts on April 30.
