Tom Varner Tonight in Seattle

From Wayward Music:

8:00 PM; $5 – $15 sliding scale donation at the door.

Seattle composer and jazz French Horn virtuoso Tom Varner performs with some of Seattle’s top players: drummer Byron Vannoy, whose new CD Meridian recently won “Best NW Release” in Earshot’s Golden Ear Awards; bassist Phil Sparks, who was just voted into the “NW Hall of Fame” in the same award ceremony; saxophonist Eric Barber; and clarinetist Jesse Canterbury. The quintet performs new works recently composed at the Centrum Foundation, among them A Waltz for Steve Lacy, In Heaven, and The Silent E in Hope, as well as some pared-down sections from Varner’s new piece for tentet, Heaven and Hell, to be released later in the year, and a few impromptu “music prayers/meditations” that work so well in the beautiful Chapel space.
