JazzPOP: Burn List featuring Cuong Vu
A product of Seattle’s vibrant creative music scene, the collaborative quartet Burn List features West Coast jazz heroes Cuong Vu (trumpet) and Greg Sinibaldi (tenor sax) with next-generation players Aaron Otheim (keyboard) and Chris Icasiano (drums). The group’s compositional aesthetic combines expansive melodies, driving rhythms, dreamily layered harmonies, and dynamic group improvisation, with musical influences ranging from Ligeti to Albert Ayler to Aphex Twin.
JazzPOP returns to the Hammer courtyard in August with three free concerts featuring some of today’s most original and distinctive voices in West Coast jazz and improvised music. Curated by Lisa Mezzacappa.
