Seattle local saxophonist Kate Olson‘s KO Ensemble will perform an experimental jazz set at The Triple Door this Wednesday, February 17. Kate has created and developed multiple improvisational projects since moving to Seattle in 2010, including Syrinx Effect and KO Solo, and has collaborated with ensembles such as Seattle Rock Orchestra and Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble.

From Kate’s website:

KO ENSEMBLE is a rotating cast of Seattle’s best jazz and creative musicians, including Tim Kennedy, Samantha Boshnack, Naomi Siegel, Robby Beasley, Simon Henneman, Chris Icasiano, Eric Eagle, Wayne Horvitz, Geoff Harper, Andy Roth, Chris Credit, Evan Flory-Barnes, and Michael Owcharuk. This is Kate’s most straight ahead jazz project, and her compositions are heavily influenced by the music of Thelonious Monk, as well as the compositions of her contemporaries in the Seattle music scene. KO ENSEMBLE has many incarnations, from duo to sextet.

Hear clips of KO Ensemble on her website, and head over to the Triple Door’s Musicquarium at 8:30 PM for a night of jazz, free of charge.
