Adrian Notebloom and Empty Boat will be performing THIS FRIDAY at Cafe Solstice, and just like all of the past showcases, music will start promptly at 7:00 PM. But this time, we have brand new faces that have not yet graced the stage for an IMP Showcase.
Playing first will be Adrian Notebloom, who will be playing with Lucas Winter (guitar) and Mathew Singler (drums) of Cornish, and Carmen Rothwell (bass) of UW. The group will be performing a few jazz standards as well as a couple originals by Notebloom. Adrian says of the group, “the guitar will act more as a horn player and do minimal comping. I want it to be pretty Tristano-like so we can play more freely over the changes.”
And performing second, Named after the Lao Tzu parable, Empty Boat is a quintet of excellent Seattle creative musicians presenting original compositions, with a heavy dose of improvisation. Empty Boat includes Don Berman (Drums), Geoff Harper (Bass), Jim Knodle (Trumpet), Dennis Rea (Guitar), and Dick Valentine (Saxes, Flutes).
Both groups will be outstanding, and we are excited to see them on the stage at Solstice.
See you there!
