Featuring Lhanna Writesel, Tommy Sciple, & Ed Stalling
Tickets will go on sale July 11
Trombonist, composer and educator Naomi Moon Siegel has “crafted a truly unique aesthetic, combining elements of straightahead, fusion and modern jazz with world-music flavors in a way that sounds entirely of the 21st century” (JAZZIZ). A recipient of the Montana Arts Council Artist Innovation Award, Chamber Music America Performance Plus Grant, and Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award, she has released two albums as a bandleader to critical acclaim. Improvisation, composition and community are at the heart of Siegel’s musical practice. Her ensemble is always listening and interacting, shaping each performance anew with dynamism. She will be joined by Missoula phenoms Lhanna Writesel on alto sax, Tommy Sciple on bass and Ed Stalling on drums.
This concert will be filmed for a future episode of The Myrna Soundstage. The 70-minute performance is followed by an onstage interview by musician John Dendy.
“The impression given by Naomi Moon Siegel is that she is serenading the constellations. There’s an imagery inherent to her music that is greater than the calculus of the notes, much in the same way a certain collection of stars become meaningful in the context of their astronomical shape and name and story.” – Dave Sumner, Best of 2019 Jazz on Bandcamp
