More than just the arty high jinks of bands like Suicide occupied the New York loft scene of the 1970s. Jazz was in high voltage, too, with the likes of saxophonist Jemeel Moondoc, who commanded the avant-garde ensemble Muntu through scenes ripped straight out of HBO’s Vinyl. Decades later, he’s still at it with a discography dozens deep. In this Earshot Festival show, he appears with longtime New York colleague and now Seattle resident trumpeter Nathan Breedlove and drummer Jamael Nance. Vancouver string master Gordon Grdina opens.
