The Tom Varner Quintet (Varner, French horn/composer; Mark Taylor, alto saxophone; Eric Barber, tenor saxophone; Phil Sparks, bass; Byron Vannoy, drums) present a mix of improvisations, new works for quintet and selected works from Tom’s three acclaimed 1990s quintet CD’s, The Mystery of Compassion, Martian Heartache, and Swimming. Also, a couple of new pieces adapted from Tom’s newest recording project, Nine Surprises, a new work for nonet, to be released this Fall.
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.
