“The impression given by Naomi Moon Siegel is that she is serenading the constellations.  There’s an imagery inherent to her music that is greater than the calculus of the notes, much in the same way a certain collection of stars become meaningful in the context of their astronomical shape and name and story.” –  Dave Sumner, Best of 2019 Jazz on Bandcamp

Trombonist, composer and educator Naomi Moon Siegel has “crafted a truly unique aesthetic, combining elements of straightahead, fusion and modern jazz with world-music flavors in a way that sounds entirely of the 21st century” (JAZZIZ). A recipient of the Montana Arts Council Artist Innovation Award, Chamber Music America Performance Plus Grant, and Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award, she has released two albums as a bandleader to critical acclaim.

The Naomi Moon Siegel Ensemble formed in 2016 after the release of Siegel’s album Shoebox View to present the album’s compositions in live performance. Playing Siegel’s original music, the band employs deep grooves, soaring melodies, fantastical soundscapes, creative interplay, and improvisation investigating themes of grief, isolation, and connection amidst climate change. The current version of the Ensemble features Marina Albero on piano, Chris Icasiano on drums, Kelsey Mines on bass, Ray Larsen on trumpet, Sean Woolstenhulme on guitar, and Siegel on trombone— all active contributors to the Pacific Northwest’s creative music scene. As the bandleader and composer, Siegel cultivates fertile ground upon which the ensemble can interact and shape the compositions anew with each performance.
