Presented by The City of Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs. Forging an incendiary blend of jazz noir, ecstatic free jazz, and free improvisation, the Wally Shoup Trio (Shoup, alto sax; Gust Burns, piano; Bob Rees, vibes & drums) pushes improvisational music to new heights. Intense and fleet, these three virtuosi take traditional music elements – rhythm, melody and harmony – and mold them into shape-shifting ingots of sound. Unrestricted by genre or style, their music moves effortlessly through a wide range of colors, emotions, and forms.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center (which sits on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish people): contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics. Watch a video clip about us on the Seattle Channel.
