GRETA MATASSA special guest JOAN PENNEY

In the Pacific Northwest, where she built her career, Greta Matassa wins wide acclaim. Seven times the readers of Earshot, the Seattle jazz magazine, have voted her the best jazz vocalist in the Northwest. She was inducted into the Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame in 2014.

Jim Wilke, the Seattle jazz maven and host of the syndicated “Jazz After Hours” radio program, praises her versatility. “She has a fearlessness in approaching material, that makes her like an instrumentalist in a jam session.”

Bassist and producer John Clayton says “One of the best jazz singers we have to boast about these days.”

Her 40 year career has been a whirlwind of exciting opportunities and experiences. In 2016, she was featured with bassist John Clayton’s group in a centennial tribute to Ella Fitzgerald. Over the last 20 years she has recorded 11 CD's and has become established as one of the greatest jazz singers the Northwest has ever produced.

JOE T COOK BLUES BAND

The Joe T. Cook Blues Band is one of the premier blues bands touring the west coast. The members are all award winning blues professionals with more than 30 years experience as gigging blues musicians. The band performs high energy traditional Chicago and west coast style blues, with elements of the old school Texas sound.

Joe T. Cook is a multiple Twin Cities Music Awards winner for his blazing blues harmonica, original songwriting and vocals. Joe is one of the true legends of the Minneapolis blues scene, having honed his craft with his award winning band the Longshots back in the 1990's. The rich, vibrant blues scene in Minneapolis that spawned the legendary Union Bar and the great bands and musicians of the Midwest was fertile ground for Joe and his band of stellar musicians. Joe writes and sings the band's original blues material and nails the humor and wry commentary of the best of the blues.

Tim "Stoop Down" Sherman is a blues guitarist nonpareil, a three time B.B. Award winner for Best Electric Guitar and WBS Hall of Fame member for his work with legendary NW band Stevie and the Blue Flames. Tim has performed with or been a member of just about every blues band of note in the Northwest since 1983. He is a true Master of the Stratocaster as well as that big red Gibson ES-355 guitar. His style combines old school Lonnie Johnson, T-Bone Walker, B.B. King and Pee Wee Crayton with west coast revival. Tim is also a disciple of the old school Texas sound of the great Anson Funderburgh and the fabulous Ronnie Earl.

Conrad "Machete" Ormsby is considered one of the best blues drummers on the west coast, and his talents are constantly in demand. He has performed with countless NW blues greats over the past 30 years and is a founding member of the famed "Ballard Shoals" rhythm section. His name strikes fear in the hearts of pretenders to the throne of blues drumming, and is the backbone of the Joe Cook Blues Band groove.

Show starts at 7:30.

JANETTE WEST

Seattle-based vocalist Janette West's multi-layered career spans four decades and was nurtured in the fabric of Northwest music history. Her voice and style is a rich composite of dynamic jazz improvisation with the plush warmth of soulful R&B influences. JazzTimes magazine writes, “West is a first rate swinger, comparable in style and gusto to Ernestine Anderson, though the warmth of her ballads is more reminiscent of Natalie Cole.” The Examiner writes: “Janette West is a lovely and mercurial vocalist, a local favorite.”

When Janette sings, she shares a passion behind every note, every breath, and you get the feeling she has lived every lyric. She knows her way around the music and easily draws the audience into a robust ride. There is an obvious respect between her and the musicians with whom she generously shares the spotlight. Says Janette, “We have an amazing resource of world-class musicians in the Seattle area. I am in awe of the players I have been fortunate to work with and I feel privileged to play music with my husband (drummer Marty Tuttle) as well.”
