Piano Starts Here highlights the work of some of the most prolific and talented jazz composers and pianists to ever tackle the instrument, hosted and curated by pianists Tim Kennedy and Wayne Horvitz.

The Jelly Rollers combine compelling rhythms with melt-in-your-mouth guitar licks, tasty harmonica, and rousing harmonies to create their own fresh brand of genre-bending blues. Best known of late for packing the dance floors around the Northwest, the group originally formed as an acoustic duo with Darren Loucas on guitar and Sean Divine on harp singing and playing in the tradition of Terry & McGhee and Cephas & Wiggins. The pair has successfully channelled this mutual interest in vintage blues into a highly danceable electric ensemble powered by the driving rhythm section of Rebecca Young and Eric Eagle. The Rollers have performed at major northwest festivals, have shared the stage with Sonny Rhodes, James Cotton, Coco Montoya, Bo Diddley, and KT Tunstall and received the award for “Best Traditional Band” by the Washington Blues Society. Their self-titled release has received substantial airplay in the Northwest and beyond, earning regular rotation status of at KEXP.

Modeled on the legendary Levon Helm's The Midnight Ramble, the Jelly Rollers present a monthly night of blues and more.

8:30pm: Ranger & the 'Re-Arrangers'/ Los Misterioso
Seattle Gypsy jazz band Ranger and the “Re-Arrangers” evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their version of Gypsy jazz. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca's sweet violin playing… his sense of melody and daring improvisations” (World Rhythm). The band’s repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, the music of Django Reinhardt, and Ranger's unique originals.

Los Misteriosos is a band from Seattle dedicated to the music of the legendary pianist and composer Thelonius Monk, and brings together three esteemed musicians of the local scene.
Classic guitar sounds of the Surf era, iconic 80's bass lines, plus creative bursts of avant garde adventurism and a heaping dose of irreverent tongue-in-cheek humor are all combined with a healthy respect for the tradition, Monk, and his compositions.
Jason Goessl-Guitar (Trimtab, Prom Queen)
