Trombonist Michael Vlatkovich approaches his music for the 21st century from an oblique angle. His stints in LA Latin bands (where he’s known as “El Rey”) and with Brian Setzer’s Big Band have left him with an affectionately sardonic take on jazz ensemble writing. One hears flashes of this twirling by like three-eyed koi in a pond. His titles are very witty, and through a substitution code serve as the notes of the music. Or vice versa. He will be joined by long-term compadres Jim Knodle (trumpet) and Greg Campbell (percussion), and a new friend, Yves Chartuest (saxophone), from Montreal.
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.
