WJMAC presents K.O. Ensemble


Kate Olson (sax), Chris Symer (bass), Brad Gibson (drums) and Alex Guilbert (keys). Seattle soprano sax sensation Olson has toured internationally and has played with Terry Riley, Stuart Dempster, Pauline Oliveros, Allison Miller, Bobby Previte, Skerik, Patricia Barber and pop music icons Elvis Costello, Brandi Carlile, Sir Mix-a-lot, Matt Cameron. In 2016 she was nominated for Earshot Jazz’s Best NW Instrumentalist, and the K.O. Ensemble was also nominated as best NW Alternative Group. Olson is well versed in straight ahead jazz but her “…heart beats strongest somewhere in the vicinity of minimalism, ambient electroacoustic music, and free improv….” -South Seattle Emerald. We’re excited to welcome Kate Olson and her K.O. Ensemble to WJMAC for the first time. Tickets at the door 6PM. Doors 6:30. First come, first seated. Program subject to change.
