One of the finest bassists in the business performs solo, “as direct and powerful as it is elegant,” as the NY Times said of his solo album The Gleaners. Acclaimed as “deeply intuitive” for his “fluid sense of melody,” Grenadier has graced the bands of such leaders as Joe Henderson, Stan Gets, Pat Metheny, and Brad Mehldau.

Opening: EarthToneSkyTone, Kelsey Mines (bass) and Carlos Snaider (guitar, udu) explore “rhythmic possibilities in flow, cycle, and song” informed by deep listening and embodiment practices in nature and dream.

Naomi Moon Siegel Quartet at North City Bistro, Shoreline

Naomi Moon Siegel – “a trombonist and composer of great style and distinction” (Earshot Jazz) – presents her original music with Marina Albero on piano, Kelsey Mines on bass, and Chris Icasiano on drums.

A winner of an Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award, her expressive trombone playing is changing the way the instrument is heard and viewed. Fusing folk melodies with fantastical soundscapes and circular grooves, she is a model of creative self-expression inspired by the jazz tradition. She is one half of the folk/punk/jazz duo Syrinx Effect, a member of Wayne Horvitz’s Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble and an active collaborator in the Seattle and Missoula music scenes, performing regionally and internationally.

Press from her latest release on Slow & Steady Records entitled Live At Earshot:

"This is music that’s rich with the deep melodic reveries and the warm harmonic embrace that made Siegel’s 2016 release Shoebox View so damn enjoyable." - The Best Jazz on Bandcamp - May 2019

"Trombonist/composer Naomi Moon Siegel has developed a consistently captivating body of instrumental music built on stately folk-like melodies, coiled grooves, and lapidary voicings." - San Francisco Classical Voice

"This live recording might change the way you think about jazz trombone." - Absolute Sound

Earshot Jazz Festival ft. Mostly Other People do the Killing / The Bloodroot


Jazz of “bustling, ostentatious impiety” from bassist Matthew “Moppa” Elliott, with drummer Kevin Shea and pianist Ron Stabinsky. Elliott says he pits his deep roots in jazz against conflicted feelings about some directions the music has taken to create “music that both blatantly mocks and reveres the jazz tradition.” Opening: The Bloodroot: Chris Icasiano, the innovative drummer from Bad Luck, performs with bassist Kelsey Mines, and Andria Nicodemu, an improvising vibes experimentalist from Cyprus via Boston.
