Friday, October 11 – 8pm

Royal Room
5000 Rainier Ave S

Wayne Horvitz’s “conduction” employing large ensemble plays the Earshot Jazz Festival tonight, in a double bill with an exceptionally beautiful young brass quintet: the Westerlies.

Really, any opportunity to hear Horvitz’s music is special, but hearing him compose in real time with this ensemble of stellar players can really be alchemical.

“Mr. Horvitz kept his attention on the band with microscopic focus, quick-cutting between contrasts, putting something free or rippling against a fixity. It held your attention, and when it was perverse, it was just perverse enough.” (NY Times)
