Neil Welch Trio Live at Egans

Saxophonist Neil Welch shares the stage tonight with bassist Abbey Blackwell and drummer Mike Gebhart. 

Egan's Ballard Jam House: 9:00-10:30pm / $7 at the door.

For this new set, Neil limited himself to composing each piece from start to finish in under 30 minutes. The tunes are little bursts of compositional energy, using quarter-tones in be-bop phrasing, lots of space for blowing, and a detailed, topographical approach to improvising together.
