Earshot Jazz joins KEXP in the Gathering Space of their new Seattle Center home for an epic opener. The music begins at 4 PM with an All-School Jazz Jam featuring top high-school players and professional mentors. At 6 PM, in Soliloquies of Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway, Om Johari (artist/vocalist/wordsmith/visual muse) arranges a jazz-heavy lineup: Ahamefule J. Oluo (trumpet), D’Vonne Lewis (drums), Tim Kennedy (keys), Jeff Fielder (guitar), Hans Teuber (piano), Evan Flory-Barnes (bass), Skerik (sax), and a special vocal duet by Johari and Riz (DJ Riz) Rollins. At 7:30 PM, Industrial Revelation, masters of a rainbow of moods, rocks the KEXP space, with Josh Rawlings (keys), Evan Flory-Barnes (bass), D’Vonne Lewis, Ahamefule J. Oluo, and special friends.
