ZERO-G PRESENTS @ THE ROYAL ROOM
The Royal Room ● 5000 Rainier Ave. S, Seattle ● 8-11 p.m. ● donation ● All ages until 10 p.m., then 21+

Zero-G Concerts is excited to present yet another evening of adventurous instrumental music at The Royal Room featuring three exciting original genre-bending ensembles:

RIK WRIGHT’S FUNDAMENTAL FORCES (8:00 p.m.)
Guitarist Rik Wright’s Fundamental Forces is an innovative collective of modern progressive jazz players who are known for their genre-bending performances – world beat one minute, rock the next, a touch of jam band and back to the core of jazz. Fundamental Forces blends forward thinking arrangements with grooves that allure at every turn. That allure has propelled them all the way to #1 on the CMJ Jazz charts. Fundamental Forces line-up for this evening features Rik Wright (guitar), Geoff Harper (bass), Greg Campbell (drums) and special guest Greg Sinibaldi (saxophone).

SAMANTHA BOSHNACK QUINTET (9:00 p.m.)
Sam Boshnack is quickly gaining acclaim as a composer, her “open voicings, jaunty tempos and buoyant timbral mixes have a friendly monster feel that achieve a bittersweet and elegiac mood of orchestral grandeur” (Downbeat). A classic jazz instrumentation that does anything but standard music, the Quintet packs a power punch. Boshnack’s primary small ensemble as a leader, this band thrashes and bounds through tightly woven twists, tunnels and cliffs with the deftness and precision of a chamber ensemble and weight of a rock band. The Sam Boshnack Quintet features Sam Boshnack (trumpet/voice), Beth Fleenor (clarinets/voice), Alex Chadsey (piano), Isaac Castillo (bass), and Max Wood (drums).

MICHAEL OWCHARUK QUARTET (10:00 p.m.)
Michael Owcharuk is a very talented and entertaining pianist who has collaborated with almost all of the leading figures in our productive and accomplished jazz scene. His work pairs an experimental edge with a strong sense of swing, and is sure to perk up the ears of eager listeners. Michael’s quartet performs original, widely-influenced tunes by Michael and other Seattle composers. Featuring Kate Olson (saxophone), Nate Omdal (bass), and Jacques Willis (drums).
