Earshot Festival Lineup

Seattle’s Earshot Jazz Festival will be held at almost exactly the same time as the San Francisco Jazz Festival (Earshot runs from Oct. 25 to Nov. 4; San Francisco starts a day earlier), and Seattle will host some of the same prominent artists. Earshot has a few stellar performers of its own to present to the public, tempting jazz fans to make mad, marathon dashes up and down Interstate-5 to see as many good shows as possible.

Headliners common to the Seattle and San Francisco fests include Dave Brubeck and his quartet; Keith Jarrett, John DeJohnette and Gary Peacock, making a rare appearance in Seattle; and a tribute to iconoclast Rahsaan Roland Kirk, led by Steve Turre and featuring James Carter, Vincent Herring and others.
