Earshot Jazz Festival

October 19- November 4, Seattle WA
Various Venues

The Earshot Jazz Festival has been described as "Seattle's most important annual jazz event," and this year's edition will no doubt add tons of critical weight to that assessment. There will be over 50 performances spread throughout Seattle during the festival's run this year, in addition to films, master classes, panel discussions, and other goodies to go along with the music. It's fine if none of these features seems to be a novel idea considering the fact that we're talking about a jazz festival-- Earshot simply does things bigger and better than about 95% of jazz festivals in the U.S. today.

Headliners: Ahmad Jamal, John Zorn, Cedar Walton, Toots Thielemans, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Jean-Michel Pilc
