Jessica Lurie "Long Haul" CD Release Concert at The Royal Room
Seattle and Brooklyn-based Jessica Lurie is one of the elite artists to come out of the Seattle 1990’s explosion of jazz and improvisational music. An award-winning multi-instrumentalist, composer, and improviser, Lurie performs on saxophones, flute, electronics and voice. Growing up under the influence of an inquisitive musical household and Seattle’s divergent yet cross-over rich music community, she calls on a wide range of musical influences from around the globe as a composer and performer. Known for “melding lyrical pop, stinging rock, rhythmic Eastern European folk music and improvisation-heavy jazz with a dose of free-wheeling avant-groove-meets-grind” (Dan Oulette), her performances are dynamic, full of high energy interaction between band members. She will be performing a diverse set as usual, featuring works from her forthcoming CD “Long Haul”, to be released on Chant Records out of NYC.
The Royal Room, 5000 Rainer Ave. S.
