Hexaphonic 3 / Dave Anderson's Trio Real
***** Tickets available at the door *****
Earshot's Jazz: The Second Century series continues into its fifth season, and this year presents eight outstanding groups over four evenings during the month of July. The participants were selected by a blind panel composed of Seattle musicians, music curators, and scribes. As in past years, the goal of the series is to present performances of music that simultaneously question and expand the conventional boundaries and parameters of the jazz form. The descriptions of the bands to follow are as much in their own words as possible. The curious and inquisitive will have to attend these live performances to see how the artists deliver on the concepts below. Their selection for the series signifies the listening panel's faith in their ability to do so.
July 14: Hexaphonic 3 / Dave Anderson's Trio Real
Hexaphonic 3 is Bruce Greeley on bass clarinet, Mike Sentkewitz on bass, and Ryan Burt on drums.
Greeley: The Hexaphonic 3 [is] a new jazz-oriented trio tight-roping along the borders of improvised music. Educated by Earshot (as well as educatING as former Earshot staff writer), we now seek to introduce our music to the same audience we have long been so much a part of. We have our own compositions as well as covering some standards (most likely fractured!), and also love to play in the moment, finding the song for where we are right then and there.
For their Second Century performance, the members of Dave Anderson's Trio Real are Anderson on soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones; Jon Hamar on bass; and Brad Boal on drums.
Trio Real: This musical project, a sax/bass/drums trio, strips the jazz group down to essential elements, while relishing rock, funk, and rhythm & blues forms and influences ... The group endeavors to have all of the improvisational freedom of a jazz group, without the harmonic restrictions of a regular chordal instrument like the piano, while expressing funk/pop influences like James Brown, John Scofield, Coldplay, etc.
