FUNDAMENTAL FORCES (8PM)
Rik Wright’s Fundamental Forces (Rik Wright – guitar, James DeJoie – reeds, Geoff Harper -bass & Greg Campbell – drums) is an innovative collective of modern progressive jazz players who have developed a rich library of original repertoire that is hauntingly beautiful, thoughtful, and evocative. The group formed as one of the house bands for Zero-G Concerts and has quickly established itself at the forefront of Seattle’s resurging jazz fusion scene.
Group leader Rik Wright has taken his love and passion for the guitar to just about every corner of the State of Washington and parts of British Columbia, Oregon and Idaho. Rik is listed in the King County Touring Arts Roster, a juried directory of the State of Washington’s very best performing artists. His recordings have been in recent rotation on the Uptown Jazz Network, Indie 104 Los Angeles, KEXP, KSER, KAOS, KBCS, and KPLU.
Jason Goessl is musical chameleon who graces the stages of Seattle’s music venues nightly. Although primarily known for his enigmatic guitarmanship in groups such Slow Skate, Trimtab and the Bayous, Jason is heralded in jazz circles as well, frequently performing with the Michel Navedo, Jimmie Herod, Brazil Novo, Mark Taylor’s Zero Goose and his own celebrated quartet. Most recently, Jason has become noted for his skills as an alt-country sideman and can be seen gigging local honkey tonks and juke joints with David Guilbault, Knut Bell and The Pornadoes.
This evening Jason will be joined by Seattle drummer Dave Bush (Golden Tree Story, Dirty Culprits, Volcano Diary) for a set of genre-bending duets. Expect anything and everything from Rock, Jazz, and Latin beats to Bluegrass, Country, and Surf music.
