Earshot Jazz says
Brad Linde’s straightHORN, a soprano-saxophone quartet, celebrates the centennial of Billy Strayhorn with new arrangements and free improvisations on compositions of Duke Ellington’s three-decade collaborator. The quartet is a trio – Kate Olson of Seattle’s Ask the Ages, and many other bands; Patrick Booth, a jazz-classical improviser based in Traverse City, Mich.; and Brad Linde, who in Washington, D.C. collaborated often with the great Freddie Redd – that imports a fourth, “stray” horn from each city it performs in. For its Earshot festival performance, the fourth horn is Jessica Lurie, who for many years was a fixture of Seattle’s progressive-jazz scene with the Tiptons and Living Daylights (see 10/25 Jessica Lurie Ensemble).

Starting the evening, two of Seattle’s leading jazzmen spirit up the mastery of Strayhorn in renditions of some of his best-loved compositions. UW professor and alto saxophonist Michael Brockman is the co-leader of the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra, while Randy Halberstadt is one of the finest pianists the region has produced.
