Fundamental Forces, Dual Process & Northern Cantrips @ Royal Room

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

The Royal Room presents an eclectic night of an exciting blend of modern jazz, free improvisation and progressive rock. A selection of the region’s most adventurous instrumentalists, from accomplished scene veterans to head-turning emerging artists will be performing: 8PM: RIK WRIGHT’S FUNDAMENTAL FORCES Guitarist Rik Wright’s Fundamental Forces is an innovative collective of modern progressive players who have developed a rich library of original compositions that are hauntingly beautiful, thoughtful, and evocative. Fundamental Forces blends forward thinking arrangements with grooves that allure at every turn. That allure has propelled both of their recent albums to the top 20 of the CMJ Jazz radio charts. Rik Wright – guitar, James DeJoie – reeds, Geoff Harper – bass, Greg Campbell – drums 9PM: DUAL PROCESS: INTERPRETATIONS OF “IN A SILENT WAY” One of Miles Davis’s seminal works, In A Silent Way represents the break point between Miles’ acoustic, more traditional approach and his electric period with more eclectic, free-flowing compositions. In A Silent Way is very much a product of the studio, featuring multiple edits that result in nonlinear song construction. Six longtime Seattle performers have rearranged these tunes for the stage and will give them a spin in real time. Ryan Berg – bass, Jim Knodle – trumpet, James DeJoie – reeds, Dennis Rea – guitar, Matt McCluskey – keyboard, Stephen Thomas Cavit - drums 10PM: SIMON HENNEMAN’S NORTHERN CANTRIPS Led by celebrated Seattle guitarist Simon Henneman, Northern Cantrips weaves a tapestry of improvisation laden original compositions and reinterpretations of bebop, modern Brazilian music, tango, hip hop, and progressive rock. Simon Henneman – guitar, Kate – saxophone, Julio Faustino, Aaron Otheim – keyboards, John Seman - bass, Evan Woodle - drums
