They honk, they squawk and they are back to make their first live record, including a bunch of new material and special guest shredder guitarist Mark Oi. The internationally acclaimed alt-jazz sextet, Reptet, will be performing at The Royal Room, located in the heart of Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood. The show is all ages until 10pm, free (with suggested donation), and has Space Owl (Seattle’s own Psychedelic Rock review) finishing the night out. Music starts at 8:30pm.
Seattle-based Reptet is an atypical modern jazz sextet consisting of three rhythm players and three horns. These six dynamic multi-instrumentalists are Samantha Boshnack (trumpet, flugelhorn), Nelson Bell (trombone, tuba), Chris Credit [MU '99] (baritone sax, tenor sax, clarinet), Tim Carey [MU '06] (upright bass), John Ewing (drums & percussion) & special guest Mark Oi [MU '05] (guitar). They play all original, fan-friendly music that challenges the discerning audiophile, while entertaining the casual listener.
Reptet gained international recognition with their 2006 release, Do This! (Monktail Records), which was a 2006 Independent Music Awards finalist for Best Jazz Record of the Year, was chosen top jazz CD of 2006 by Jazziz Magazine’s Alex Gelfand, and made the top ten lists of many other writers and critics across the globe. They gained further recognition by winning two Earshot Jazz 2007 Golden Ear Awards - Best Outside Jazz Group and Best Live Performance (as part of the Monktail Raymond Scott Project). In 2008 they released their second full length CD, Chicken or Beef?, which further solidified their presence on the American music scene. Their most recent release is entitled, At The Cabin (ARC Records) has also been hailed as a triumph of originality and independence.
