WJMAC presents Phil Parisot Quartet: To The Max! (For Max Roach)


Phil Parisot (composer, drums), Steve Tressler (tenor sax), Dan Kramlich (piano), Clipper Anderson (bass). Parisot has "the classic Seattle jazz pedigree." He was one of the first Garfield HS Jazz Band sensations, he lived in NYC and played with Roy Hargrove, Steve Coleman, David Gilmore, Ravi Coltrane and Antonio Hart, and when he returned to Seattle he became a favorite sideman for straight-ahead and for modernist jazz musicians. He has released two albums of his own compositions since 2016, "Lingo" and "Creekside". Tonight his quartet will be honoring Max Roach, playing selections recorded by Roach from the 1940s through 1960s. Paul Rauch, All About Jazz says, "Parisot never seems to run out of inspired thought as a composer, or original rhythmic conception as a drummer. (photo: Tickets at the door 6PM. Doors at 6:30PM.
