Mon, Mar 2, 2015 at 9pm
Tickets: $12 in advance/ $15 at the door/ $8 students
The Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble is a 12-15 piece band featuring Seattle's finest and most innovative improvisers under the direction of composer Wayne Horvitz. The RRCME performs Mr. Horvitz's compositions in a loosely constructed format which uses a combination of on-the-spot (re)arranging and various other techniques, some of which have come to be known as "conduction".
Trumpeter Ingrid Jensen and saxophonist Steve Treseler pay tribute to the life, leagcy, and music of the great Kenny Wheeler (1930 - 2014). Kenny's stunning compositions and imaginative improvisations on trumpet and flugelhorn have left deep impressions on generations of musicians and listeners. The band features pianist Geoffrey Keezer, bassist Martin Wind, drummer Jon Wikan, and vocalist Katie Jacobson.
