The Royal Room

$5-15 Sliding Scale**

Come join the party as we celebrate the outstanding achievements of Seattle jazz artists in 2023. The ceremony recognizes both emerging talent and Seattle veterans from all jazz genres. Special awards are also presented to people or groups that have made extraordinary contributions in 2023, perhaps through a remarkable presentation, support to fellow artists, or new initiatives in education or collaboration.

Helping us celebrate is Jun Iida and his ensemble. After working the Los Angeles scene for some time, Iida moved to Seattle in 2020 where he has quickly established a reputation as a dynamic, talented and respected musician. He has performed with Marina Albero, Jay Thomas, Josh Hou, Kelsey Mines, Bill Anschell, Skerik, Ray Larsen, and Chris Symer among others. Much in demand, Iida feels comfortable as a sideman and as a a band leader. Iida appreciates reworking the jazz standards as well as presenting his own compositions and improvising. Iida’s debut album as leader, Evergreen, will be released in January 2024 on Origin Records.

6:30-7:30pm Jun Iida
