The New Cool: London's Sons of Kemet in Seattle
 
It's been a busy week at KNKX, and thanks to listeners like you, the Fall fund drive has concluded with our incredibly ambitious $600,000 goal reached this past Thursday. Thank you! Now on with the show... London's modern jazz scene continues to impress from across the pond, and Sunday night one of that city's top saxmen brings his quartet to Seattle for a show you shouldn't miss. You've heard Shabaka Hutchings on The New Cool playing sax with Tom Skinner's Hello Skinny project, Austrian band Shake Stew, and singer Zara McFarlane. He's best known, though, for Sons of Kemet . The band formed in 2011 with Skinner and Seb Rochford on drums and Oren Marshall on tuba. Theon Cross plays tuba on their new 3rd album, Your Queen is a Reptile , just released on Impulse! Records. As you might imagine, a two-drummer quartet creates a percussive sound, and the tuba provides the bass that rounds out this rhythm section. Hutchings saxophone is also very rhythmic, and provides most of the melodies in

With the release of their new album Four (their 4th, natch), Bad Luck is reining in their longform free improvisations a bit, but without losing any of their epic energy.

Dylan Hayes' Jazz College Days
 
We first encountered talented pianist Dylan Hayes performing with a trio at Centrum's Jazz Pt. Townsend camp this Summer, and we knew this young man was ready for the KNKX studios. Hayes is in his final year studying jazz at Cornish College in Seattle, and he brought a fellow student and a few friends in town for a sonic display of his skills as a player, bandleader and composer. He's been working with his own big band and the large ensemble led by Jim Knapp, as well as various small groups around town for a couple years. This Studio Session blended Hayes' talents on acoustic and electric keyboards, with terrific moments for all five members of his quintet. Having known drummer Xavier Lecouturier since high school, their collaborations were the most impressive. Especially noteworthy was their co-written song "XD", but all three originals required plenty of sheet music for all the players. In spite of the concentration on the pages, the music carried the organic feeling of having been

School Of Jazz Triple-Play With Seattle JazzED
 
KNKX hosted students of Seattle JazzED's Summer Advanced Institute for a second time in August, and the kids set a new record for largest group to play in our studios. A total of 29 students split into 3 combos with mentors Riley Mulhelkar (trumpeter with the Westerlies, this Seattle native now lives in New York City), Sammy Miller (New York-based drummer who leads Sammy Miller and the Congregation), and Marina Albero (the Spanish pianist who's thrilled Seattle audiences upon her arrival in 2014). Each of the mentors stressed the importance of teamwork in jazz education, and these kids certainly got along well. Another point of mention to the students was to enjoy each moment you get to play, that seemed baked into the day with Seattle JazzED. The non-profit organization has been working hard to provide the best jazz education possible for Puget Sound area kids since 2010, and this year participation has grown to serve over 900 kids. Their space at the MLK F.A.M.E. Community Center in

The New Cool: Negative Press Project Visits Seattle
 
The Oakland based Negative Press Project are built from a variety of musical talents, some from the California Jazz Conservatory, but others employing skills honed in the realms of pop, rock, global folk and classical music. Together, the octet delivers a "jazz adjacent" sound that allows for countless creative possibilities. NPP will be exploring some of those possibilities at Cafe Racer in Seattle Sunday night, with the Racer Sessions jam following. Co-led by pianist Ruthie Dineen and bassist Andrew Lion, NPP's first release Seeevileyes - Civilize was comprised of original music celebrating personal moments and reflecting on life and the world around us. The group in 2015 produced cool modern post-jazz with smart pop songcraft, shining playing from individuals and ensembles within the band. Last year's sophomore release was the tribute Eternal Life: Jeff Buckley Songs and Sounds , dedicated to the late artist who produced one massively influential album, Grace , in 1994. Buckley's
