An “Art of Jazz” favorite, saxophonist Kareem Kandi digs in with drummer Max Wood and accomplished B-3 organist Delvon Lamarr. (Co-presented with Seattle Art Museum.)
The talented and versatile saxophonist Kareem Kandi returns to the Brotman Forum at Seattle Art Museum with his trio. A preferred artist in the monthly Art of Jazz series, Kandi is joined by the soulful B-3 organist Delvon Lamarr and capable drummer Max Wood. A native of the Pacific Northwest, Kandi has been a sought-after performer, composer, and educator, willing to go beyond the expected to create his own unique style. After graduating from Cornish in 2002, he has garnered praises for his hard-swinging tunes and is appreciated by enthusiastic audiences with his impact on the regional jazz scene. While paying tribute to traditional and timeless musical styles of jazz, blues and funk, the Kareem Kandi Trio has a sound that is fresh, innovative, and appealing.
