The 10:00 Quartet — Creative Cross-Pollination

_90B9129_yt.jpg

This quartet is made up of female high-school jazz students from all over the region.  They met through their work with Seattle Jazz Ed, a non-profit provider of year-round jazz classes and activities for young jazz musicians, no matter where the go to school or what their financial circumstances are. 

The 10:00 Quartet is just one example of the great benefit Seattle Jazz Ed provides when it comes to helping young players expand their social/musical networks creatively cross-pollinate with like-minded collaborators. 

Joining the quartet for this live studio session is saxophonist Paul Gillespie, the band’s token male for the day.  (He also works as band director for Interlake High School, so that probably also helped him get this gig.)
