Violinist and singer Regina Carter kicks off this years month filled Earshot Jazz Festival.

Earshot’s mission is on display and in action as the organization “cultivates a vibrant jazz community to ensure the legacy and progression of the art form by engaging audiences, celebrating artists, and supporting arts education”.

The dozens of national artists include the David Sanborn Jazz Quintet revisiting his passion for straight-ahead jazz with a stunning band: Wycliffe Gordon (trombone), Billy Kilson (drums), Andy Ezrin (piano/keyboards), and Ben Williams (bass);  Raul Midon; Geoge Colligan; Buster Williams & Lenny White Trio. Northwest artists are many and varied and include Javino Santos Neto; Michael Powers & Deems Tsutakawa and others – there is something for everyone.
