Some’tet and all its jazz, post-jazz, outsider music, torch songs from Mars, kit and caboodle, evolved from a weekly jam on Vashon during the summer of 2015. The overall sound is almost west coast cool -- but with some wicked curves. One part composed, one part improvised, a hint of neo-bossa rhythms, touches of free jazz, plus a bit of old-school soul. Some’tet gigs every Sunday at Vashon’s Snapdragon Café and regularly throughout the Puget Sound region. Last year they were one of four bands selected for the annual EarShot 2nd Century Jazz Festival in Seattle.
Michael Whitmore - nylon string guitar
Barrett Cooper - trumpet & flugelhorn
Christine Goering - vocals
Patrick Christie - upright bass
Ambrose Nortness - tenor sax & bass clarinet
Wesley Peterson - drums
