Sat, October 5th from 7:00 pm at Town Hall-The Forum as part of the 2019 Earshot Jazz Festival w/ 200 Trio: Max Holmberg, Greg Feingold, Cole Schuster, and Eric Verlinde
This was a fantastic show and I am honored to have been a part of the festival. I have some beautiful photos that were taken by the talented L.Elizabeth Carpenter.
Update* There are special moments when a musician has all that they need to perform at a level where they are enjoying the performance. What happened at the Forum was one of those magical nights where I felt as if I was dreaming and I wanted it to never end. Cole, Max, Greg, and Eric played like the master musicians and humble human beings that allowed the space for me to be vulnerable. This is a new thing for me as I am trying to navigate my music as an authentic person. This can be tricky especially as a black woman in Seattle, the audience might want to hear what is in your heart. This particular evening that was not the case and the room was full of love and respect. I yearn for this space all the time and I am honored that the musicians, sound engineers, volunteers, and audience came together and made it a memorable night.
Here is a little write up from the Earshot Jazz Festival Program page 9:Vocalist Jacqueline Tabor conjures images of the blues, and the gospel roots from which American jazz music blossomed. Riding the wave of her recent release, The Lady in the Gown, Tabor has been engaging jazz audiences around the Northwest with her original interpretations of jazz classics. Her audacious, bold musical personality has created a strong following for her much-anticipated dates in area clubs and concert halls.
In the first of two Seattle showcases, three of the region’s best bets: bluesy vocalist Jacqueline Tabor; dynamic pianist/percussionist Marina Albero; and Origin Records all-star trio Rick Mandyck, Jeff Johnson, and John Bishop. Between sets, saxophonist Stuart MacDonald’s Trace Generations project, supported by the Raynier Foundation, brings together veterans and up-and-comers.
I will be one of three acts representing the talented musicians of the Pacific Northwest. I have the honor of playing with the beautiful 200 Trio: Max Holmberg on drums, Greg Feingold on bass and Cole Schuster on guitar with special addition of and Eric Verlinde on piano.
Our former Downstairs space is now the Forum—a completely flexible 300-seat space designed to keep up with Town Hall’s fluid calendar. A mobile stage and non-fixed seats allow the 5,000 ft2 space to adapt to the needs of each event, while the library and custom bar flanking the room provide an easy way to transform the energy in the room each night. This adaptability alongside its technical capacities makes the Forum one of the most flexible and professional midsized-capacity performance spaces in Seattle.
