Syrinx Effect (8 p.m.)
The Syrinx Effect, an experimental folk-jazz duo featuring Kate Olson (saxophone, percussion, effects) and Naomi Siegel (trombone, percussion, effect), melds written and improvised material, synthesizing sonic zones and timbral extremes.
Deal’s Number (9 p.m.)
The longest running Monktail Creative Music Concern contingent in Seattle, Deal’s Number represents the Monktail philosophy of improvisation and spontaneous composition through the musings of saxophonist Bill Monto. Classically trained and devoid of jazz cliché and traditionalist hubris, Monto’s tone stretches and skronks and splats patterns of sound around the rolling boil of the John Seman (bass) / Mark Ostrowski (drums) rhythm section.
