Seattle Improvised Music Festival (Streamed)

Like most of my musician friends, I lost a lot of work during COVID-19 that I was uncertain of whether I'd ever retrieve it back again. I'm happy to say that one performance did find it's way into the lost and found box. The Seattle Improvised which has been presenting pre-recorded streamed performances since September 27, 2020, will conclude their festivities on Sunday, October 4, 2020

Beginning at 10:00 PM, the line-up will be as follows:

  • Ben Goldberg, clarinet (Berkeley)
  • Galin Hebert, drums; Laurel Evers, clarinet
  • Sam Newsome, soprano saxophones (Harlem)
  • Thomas Campbell, drums; Dick Valentine, flutes, sax; Tamara Zenobia, voice
  • Joe McPhee, sax (Poughkeepsie)
The event will be streamed on the Race Sessions YouTube channel.

I look forward to seeing you there!
