Casa de la Trova hosted by SuperSones

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

SuperSones play the sublime music known as Son - the acoustic dance music of the Cuban countryside that inspired modern Salsa. Son is a unique blend of Spanish guitars and harmony, Afro-Cuban percussion and swing, call-and-response singing, and trumpet improvisation. From the 1930's in Havana to the present moment, Cuban septets like SuperSones have inspired people around the world to dance and ce...lebrate. SuperSones represent this rich musical tradition with a wide range of classic and original songs in the many genres within the Son family: bolero, cha cha cha, guaracha, and son montuno among others. The group plays songs written by some of the greatest composers of Cuban popular music including Compay Segundo, Miguel Matamoros, Isaac Oviedo, and Arsenio Rodriguez. SuperSones recreate these songs with their own arrangements and improvisations to bring the Son alive in the Pacific Northwest. The group also regularly features original compositions firmly rooted in the Son tradition.

An Evening with Spencer & Sequoia & Alex Ashley, with Special Guests

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Tickets: $15 adv/dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets
Advance tickets for this show are sold out, but there will be limited tickets available at the door on a first come, first serve basis.

About Spencer and Sequoia:
Spencer and Sequoia are a husband and wife duo touring the East Coast, wowing audiences with their unique blend of Pop, Folk, Jazz and RnB. Fresh off two successful single releases, a nomination at the 2016 Independent Music Awards, and features across the web and in print (including Borns Music, Pause and Play, and even Relix Magazine), they release their debut EP this fall.

Spencer and Sequoia began as an intercontinental musical collaboration via email. In her hometown of Auckland, New Zealand, Sequoia would write and record demos. Those demos would get sent to Spencer, a Seattleite living in New York. He would then work on the songs with his band, and they'd send their work back to Sequoia. When she finally made the trip to America to perform with the band, what started as a musical connection became much more. Come see the dynamic duo share their love and music, and celebrate the release of their Debut EP! This show will also feature Drew Tucker, Bill Muter, and Claudens Louis.

“...this vital, direct approach only enhances the emotional honesty and integrity in the songs”
- Born Music

About Alex Ashley:
“Masterfully weaving the old with the new, Alex Ashley brings fresh eyes and an old soul to the gritty realities of life and love lost. With an unorthodox approach [speaking of his method of playing guitar upside down and backwards], Ashley delivers heartfelt vocals and wields his well-worn six-string to stir fresh reflection on the human condition in a way only honest American music can. And that’s what he makes - real music of the tortured and fiercely independent West, rooted firmly in the musical traditions of country and rock & roll.” — Dillon Honcoop, Cascade Radio Group

“Alex Ashley’s … songwriting takes you inside yourself and then out, impressing the beauty and danger of the complex world we live in, the heart is best kept safe through lyrical wanderings… A singer-songwriter to watch for, and listen to in these days of ours…”—Zan Agzigian, Host/Producer, 91.1 KPBX Spokane Public Radio

A rare, triple-threat singer, songwriter and instrumentalist, Alex Ashley creates an electrifying amalgam of insightful lyrics, profound storytelling, sultry, smoky vocals and razor-sharp guitar playing that brings his songs to life with nostalgic effervescence. Described as a combination of Jackson Browne, Eric Clapton and "a young Vince Gill," Ashley crosses the boundaries of folk, blues and Americana music with new and original songwriting.

JazzED: Girls Ellington Project

4:30pm | Doors at 4:00pm

Seattle JazzED is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, which was founded in 2010 by Laurie de Koch, Shirish Mulherkar, Clarence Acox and Robert Knatt. Laurie wanted kids to get great music education opportunities, regardless of what school they went to or how much money they had.

JazzED started out with two jazz ensembles that met weekly. Since then, the roster of programs has grown to include many more ensembles, masterclasses, summer camps, vocal ensembles, combo training, an all-city girls band and jam sessions. Now over 500 students from 70+ different schools come through the doors every year.

Hopscotch

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

HOPSCOTCH is the musical duo of singer/songwriter Jeanie Mishler and composer and pianist Charlie Hiestand. Along with standards from the Great American Songbook, they've collaborated with an accomplished collection of Seattle players to bring to life songs they've co-written and arranged. Their music offers up a rich variety of new jazz, drawing from swing, blues, latin, funk, and hip-hop.

Their 2014 debut album, HOPSCOTCH, received instant radio play at jazz stations across the country, including KKJZ, Los Angeles, CA, KSDS, San Diego, CA, WKGC, Panama City, FL, WJSU, Jackson, MS, KNIK, Anchorage, AK to name a few.

Influenced by bands like Pink Martini, both Jeanie and Charlie write songs that pay homage to the rich tradition of jazz song structure, with rhythms and harmonies that support rhyme schemes that make sense--nothing minimalist or reductive about them.

They've developed a sound that is simultaneously both retro and current with grooves that give them a fresh feel. "Hopscotch features the fluid vocal styling of the very talented Jean Mishler fronting an ensemble of Seattle's best players on a set of fresh poppy jazz infused with classic style." Rick J Bowen--Seattle Examiner.

Django's Birthday

6:00pm | Doors at 5:00pm

Gypsy jazz musicians from around Puget Sound will celebrate Django Reinhardt’s 108th birthday with an evening of music. The party will be hosted by two bands, Nuages and Ranger and the ‘Re-Arrangers’, plus other top Seattle Gypsy Jazz musicians will make guest appearances.

Django was an itinerant Gypsy who earned international acclaim in the 1930’s. Many of his compositions became jazz classics and he is considered one of the top guitar soloists of all time. Duke Ellington referred to Django as “the most creative jazz musician to originate anywhere outside the United States.” Decades later, Jerry Garcia said, “Even today, nobody has really come to the state that he was playing at…nobody plays with the whole fullness of expression that Django had.”

Nuages blends the music of Django Reinhardt with modern jazz concepts. Bandleader Michael Gurule plays soprano sax with a fiery passion--it's like Sidney Bechet and Django Reinhardt got together to jam! 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” Both groups have performed at North America’s top gypsy jazz festival, Djangofest Northwest.

The evening will feature a mix of swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, and the music of Django Reinhardt. Says Sciacca: “Our goal is to make this a really fun show, featuring as many great Gypsy jazz players as we can.”
