Sounds Outside

The success of this free concert series—now in its fifth year—proves that adventurous improvising can provide a sunny afternoon’s soundtrack just as well as the usual Northwest festival fare. Members of the Monktail collective have put together another slate of Seattle’s best creative players, including the Jazz Composers Ensemble and the Zubatto Syndicate, two sprawling and multi-layered bands. Wayne Horvitz’s Sonny Clark tribute band is on tap too, along with some guests from New York (unknown to me) called Father Figures. MARK D. FEFER
