Velocity — South Sound Sound

In the Puget Sound area, many may see Seattle as the hub of the regional jazz community, but Tacoma, just about 30 miles down I-5 has an extremely happening scene, as well. 

Take the band, Velocity—these guys get up on their back legs and howl. Their music is jazz rooted in funk and fusion and they can definitely throw down some killer grooves.  And they’re always challenging themselves.

During the interview, the keyboardist/composer, Peter Adams had this to say about how Velocity rolls.  “I think the goal with all the songs is to write stuff we can’t play and then learn how to play it.”  It seems to be working.
