No longer a well-kept secret for locals, the J’s Concert Series continues to garner notoriety from discriminating concert enthusiasts with acclaimed musicians offering diverse entertainment in an unparalleled venue.
According to the Seattle Weekly, Pearl Django plays “with such verve, skill and pleasure that they’re pretty much irresistible to jazz and non-jazz listeners alike.” With a performance history spanning more than two decades, Pearl Django endures as one of the most highly regarded Hot Club style groups working today. Although the band’s roots are firmly in the music made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, its extensive repertoire includes traditional jazz classics and original compositions. Pearl Django has performed at festivals, dances and nightspots throughout the USA and abroad and have been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered”. The band’s signature style is marked by pristine and dexterous string work, colors of Bal Musette, the steady pulse of rhythm guitar and an unmistakable swing that delights audiences of all musical sensibilities. Pearl Django has cultivated a devoted and enthusiastic following and they continue to play to packed houses.
Seattle jazz vibraphonist Susan Pascal has taken her music through four tours of Singapore, plus concerts, workshops and clinics across the USA. Pascal is heard on numerous motion picture sounds and is a guest artist on recordings by vocalist Greta Matassa. Pascal’s eclectic musical interests are reflected in her own projects. Soul Sauce quintet is a tribute to Latin jazz icon Cal Tjader, and her new Brazil Project band features the rich rhythmic and melodic traditions of Brazil.
