The Earshot Jazz Festival started a couple of days ago and I am already falling behind. I will attempt to catch up over the next few days and provide pictures from as many performances as I can. Tonight I will begin here with the incomparable Eric Vloeimans and his group Gatecrash. they put on an amazing and mesmerizing performance at The Seattle Art Museum.
The stellar Dutch trumpeter’s Gatecrash chain-links lazy lounge, hard-core beats, spaced-out moods, and Zappaesque meters, with soundscapist Jeroen van Vliet, Gulli Gudmundsson on bass and effects, and emerging drum star Jasper van Hulten.
