Another Great Group Part 2

By , October 5, 2009 11:02 am

Once again, Seattle music blew me away. I’ve talked about playing with Scott Morning in Soul Kata before, mostly describing his ability as a section player, but that’s not how I originally got to know him. Scott’s always been a great improviser and composer, bringing together all of his musical tastes to make one stew, and he finally has put a band together to get his music out there. Doomsday Device is Scott on trumpet and effects, Aaron Jenkins on saxophone and effects, Rich Pellegrin on keyboards, Nate Omdal on bass, and Grant Schroff on drums, playing all sorts of stuff, jazz, rock, drum and bass, you name it. They rocked the Sunset Tavern in Ballard last night and I hope they get some more shows together soon.

Next, I bounced over to the Comet Tavern to see Gackstatter, an awesome rock band that includes Tim Carey, the bass player for Hardcoretet, Evan Gackstatter on vocals and guitar, and Nathan Taylor on drums. It was incredibly fun to see these guys rocking their asses off, especially since I’m used to seeing Tim play jazz, and the only other time I’d heard Evan was with an R&B singer! My face got melted, and the music was just plain good.

Thanks guys.
