Some’tet

September 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Local Music Series Presents:

Some’tet

In April of 2013, guitarist/composer Michael Whitmore began a weekly residency at the Snapdragon Café on Vashon Island. Over the next few years this little ‘Sunday night jam’ became a full-blown ensemble … the whole jazz, post-jazz, neo-bossa, torch songs from mars, kit and caboodle. Since then, they’ve been gigging around the Puget Sound area, playing in venues such as The Sorrento, Musicquarium/Triple Door, the Parliament Tavern and the Vermillion. In July 2017, Some’tet was one of only four bands selected for the annual EarShot Second Century Jazz Festival.

Some’tet. The music is both composed and improvised. The overall sound can be mellow, almost west coast cool, but with moments of intense invention. Add a dollop of American primitivism, clusters of neo-boss nova rhythms, the occasional art song, savory free jazz, a torch song, some very soulful vocals and there you have it — Some’tet.

Their first EP “Steps” was released this past spring. Later this winter, the band will be heading back into the studio to record a full-length release. Stay tuned.

Everyone in Some’tet lives on Vashon:

Michael Whitmore — nylon string guitar
Christine Goering — vocals
Barry Cooper — trumpet/flugelhorn
Kevin Nortness — tenor saxophone
Patrick Christie — upright bass
