Earshot Jazz Festival

Category: Arts + Events Articles


The 20th annual Earshot Jazz Festival celebrates jazz in all its forms—from classics to—cutting edge, and the repertoire of panels, poetry readings, art exhibits and film screenings that accompany the music prove just how widespread its influence is. More than 60 events take place around the city during the three-week festival, featuring free-jazz pianist Cecil Taylor, saxophonist James Moody with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra, and the award-winning jazz bands from Garfield and Roosevelt high schools.
