Earshot: Trio Illogic + Helix
Presented by Earshot Jazz as part of their Jazz: the 2nd Century series. Helix is an ensemble with an unusual lineup: two saxophones and two percussionists. Eric Barber and Greg Sinibaldi perform on tenor saxophones, while Paul Kikuchi and Greg Campbell play drumsets and other percussion instruments. Trio Illogic consists of three relative newcomers to the Seattle jazz scene: trumpeter Riley Mulherkar, pianist Julian Garvue, and trombonist Willem de Koch, who make sense of the New Orleans traditional jazz approach by pulling it apart and putting it back together for modern times.
