Kate Olson and the KO Ensemble
Wed, March 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm
We’re excited to welcome Kate Olson and her K.O. Ensemble to WJMAC for the first time. Seattle soprano sax sensation Olson has toured internationally and has played with Terry Riley, Stuart Dempster, Pauline Oliveros, Allison Miller, Bobby Previte, Skerik, Patricia Barber and pop music icons Elvis Costello, Brandi Carlile, Sir Mix-a-Lot, and Matt Cameron. In 2016 she was nominated for Earshot Jazz’s Best NW Instrumentalist, and the K.O. Ensemble was also nominated as best NW Alternative Group. Olson is well versed in straight-ahead jazz but her “…heart beats strongest somewhere in the vicinity of minimalism, ambient electroacoustic music, and free improv…” (South Seattle Emerald).

Cost: $10 general, $5 student, WJMAC members and students FREE
Lineup: Kate Olson (soprano sax), Chris Symer (bass), Brad Gibson (drums) and Alex Guilbert (keys)
