Is That Jazz? Fest: Christian Asplund + Cipher
The Seattle Composers' Salon presents the first annual IS THAT JAZZ? festival. Christian Asplund (Provo, UT) performs works from his recent CD of solo viola music. It is stunning music, and his style and presence are worth the price of admission. Cipher (Seattle/Brooklyn) features some of the finest improvisers this fair city has to offer: violinists Tom Swafford and Tari Nelson-Zagar, and reed players Jesse Canterbury and Greg Sinibaldi.
