Wednesday, August 20th Allison Adams Tucker
8:00pm
Tickets: $17 advance / $20 door – available now from Stranger Tickets.

Join multilingual vocalist Allison Adams Tucker from Southern California on a musical journey as she celebrates the release of her second CD April in Paris – songs of springtime and new beginnings from around the world. The album was recorded in Paris on UNESCO's 1st International Jazz Day at the end of her last Europe tour, including international musicians and arrangers from 5 countries. One of the arrangers is Seattle's own Brazilian pianist Jovino Santos Neto.

With a voice "supple as silk and smooth as cashmere" (eJazzNews), and "mesmerizing, whether in English, Japanese, French" (GirlSingers.org), Allison Adams Tucker creates a unique montage of jazz-driven melodies and rhythms in 6 languages that is turning heads. From Brazilian to straight ahead, French chansons to Mediterranean and beyond, "expect the unexpected." (Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene)

Allison's debut CD Come With Me (Allegato Music 2008), co-produced by jazz guitarist Peter Sprague (Dianne Reeves, Chick Corea, Sergio Mendes) and arranged by Kamau Kenyatta (Gregory Porter, Hubert Laws, Earl Klugh, Patti Austin), received international acclaim, was nominated for Best Jazz Album 2009 by the San Diego Music Awards, and continues to receive airplay on radio stations in 18 countries. Allison’s voice can be heard on national commercials and video games, and her interpretation of "La Vie En Rose" is one to the top downloads on iTunes, Pandora, and Spotify worldwide.

Allison performs regularly for audiences in Japan, Europe, Mexico, and around the US, and is joined for this Seattle performance by: Jovino Santos Neto (piano/sax), Chuck Deardorf (bass), Mark Ivester (drums), and special guests!

Friday, August 30th Flamenco at The Royal Room: Cuerdas con Lunares
7:00pm
Tickets: $15 advance / $18 door – Available now at Stranger Tickets.

Cuerdas con Lunares translated is "guitar strings with polka dots". Polka dots were traditionally worn by the gypsies of southern Spain when performing the soulful union of song, guitar and dance which was eventually called flamenco. Lines and dots can also be imagined as written musical scores that can be rearranged multiple times to create different expressions of feeling and mood. Cuerdas con Lunares comes from three passionate artists who revel in the tradition of flamenco while adding something of themselves and their experiences. The group is based out of Seattle although all three individuals have crossed paths while working on their art in Sevilla, Spain.

Melinda Hedgecorth comes direct from Sevilla, Spain, her home for the last 10 years where she dances in local flamenco tablaos and peñas as well as making special appearances in El Museo de Baile Flamenco Cristina Hoyos and in the festival Flamenco en la Frontera in Morón de la Frontera.

Jed Miley recently returned to Seattle from New York where he was working with Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana and Flamenco Revolución teaching, composing, and performing at venues such as Jacob´s Pillow. He has his own Flamenco Rock band Dientes de Caramelo and a new recording studio in Seattle, Pinche Studios.

Daniel Azcarate returns to Seattle fresh from Sevilla, Spain where he has spent the last year intensely studying at Fundación Cristina Heeren, performing at local tablaos, and recording his first CD Mi Camino Flamenco.

6:30pm Chris McCarthy/Michael Mayo Project + Will and Peter Anderson
M.A.R.C is an up and coming Boston based quartet. While all four band members come from jazz backgrounds, as a collective they incorporate neo-soul, Brazillian, and rock influences into a sound that is forward thinking and uncompromising. With original material from all four band members, covers ranging from Flying Lotus to Adele, and years of experience playing together in a large range of contexts, M.A.R.C. promises to deliver a set that is as fun and accessible as it is sophisticated and diverse.

Will and Peter Anderson with special guest Alex Wintz
”Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone,” (NY Times) Peter & Will Anderson are one of the most extraordinary duos in jazz performing today, playing “with a passion, unpredictability, and sense of discovery.” (All About Jazz) Natives of Washington DC, the Andersons' are Juilliard graduates, have played on GRAMMY winning recordings, and are described as"clever, charming...true showmen, with a delightful connection with the audience." They will be joined by the phenomenal guitarist Alex Wintz playing American songbook hits, New Orleans jazz tunes, and classical adaptations.

10:00pm T' Monde
T' Monde, meaning "little world" or "little people”, began playing together in early 2011. Members Drew Simon, Megan Brown, and Kelli Jones-Savoy are seasoned musicians and have played with many renowned Cajun bands including the Pine Leaf Boys, the Savoy Family band, Walter Mouton and the Scott Playboys, the Magnolia Sisters, and Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys just to name a few. Steeped in traditionalism, T'Monde plays old fashioned Cajun music ranging from the early 1900's to present day. All three musicians are talented singers, having their own distinct sound that makes the band very unique and special to see. Influenced by many different styles of folk music, T' Monde brings you rocking two steps, beautiful harmonies, sorrowful waltzes, and heartfelt blues. Our debut album, “Making Believe” is a fine example of the band’s special dynamic of different musical styles, soulful singing, and musicianship that makes the band fun to watch and listen to.

Thursday, August 21st Orca/JAMS Summer Jazz combo/ Ryan Burns Trio
6:30pm: Orca/JAMS Summer Jazz combo

8:00pm: Ryan Burns Trio
The Ryan Burns Trio explores the classic piano trio format, much in the lineage of greats Ahmad Jamal, Oscar Peterson, and Bill Evans. Ryan Burns has recorded a half dozen CD’s as a leader, his trio taking on many incarnations since his debut release “That’s The Ryan Burns Trio” in 1998. A veteran of rock and jazz fusion groups, Burns often works with fretless electric bassist Steve Kim and drummer Jacques Willis. RBT has also employed many of Seattle’s finest, including bassists Geoff Harper, Jeff Johnson and Geoff Cooke, as well as drummers Jose Martinez, Tad Britton, Matt Jorgensen and Mike Stafford. Material ranges from Thelonious Monk to The Rolling Stones, with a steady dose of originals by Burns and his band members. Tonight he is joined by Geoff Harper and Reade Whitwell.

The Seattle Weekly writes "Burns has a fantastically fertile brain, prodding the music with unexpected voicings and twisted runs; as with the best pianists, his comping is as intriguing as his solos."

Friday, August 22nd Correo Aereo Trio with Amy Denio & Evan Flory Barnes/ The Teaching
8:00pm
Correo Aereo is an award winning acoustic multi-instrumental and vocal Latin/World Music Duo. They perform traditional music of Latin America: especially of Venezuela, Argentina & Mexico, as well as their own original music deeply inspired by swimming and playing in these ancient rivers of traditions while being alive to organic innovation. Dr. Juan Tony Guzman, Head of the Jazz Dept. at Luther College writes: “Listening to their performance one can unite space and time across cultures.”
www.correoaereo.us

Featuring keyboardist Josh Rawlings, bassist Evan Flory-Barnes, and percussionist Jeremy Jones, The Teaching creates immersive and infectious improvised music as no one else in Seattle is making it. The trio formed in 2006, growing exclusively from the chemistry the band discovered on stage. The band’s philosophical trajectory was more clearly defined, as the trio shared the rather grand interest in sharing the teachings of mankind, while also fostering a musical environment of “devotion, surrender, sensitivity, enthusiasm, and joy to direct the flow of the music.”

Some of us have been playing the piano "all our lives" and some of us are adult beginners who started not too long ago. What brings us together is the love of music and the love of the piano, which to us is the grandest of all the instruments. In this day and age when flagship piano stores are closing their doors, we are taking our act to the public to encourage other musicians and to share our joy of music.
