Cafe Racer celebrates five years of far-out jazz | Concert preview

Neil Welch (Nathan Vass)

Neil Welch (Nathan Vass)

The late baritone saxophonist Andrew Carrico, who died tragically young in 2012, used to describe his sound as “somewhere between a cry and a roar.” The musicians who gathered with him at the University District hangout Cafe Racer appropriately adopted those words as the title of their festival, which celebrates the kind of unpredictable, elbows-out jazz (and beyond) played at the cafe’s Racer Sessions. The fifth edition of the festival is this weekend.

The Friday roster features Albert Ayler-influenced saxophonist Neil Welch (pictured); the intriguingly mysterious Lawson ensemble; electronic experimentalists Young Nudist (with keyboardist Michael Coleman), and the delightfully wonky electro-pop quintet Heatwarmer (Luke Bergman, vocals, bass, keyboards; Kristian Garrard, guitar, conga; Aaron Otheim, keyboards, vocals; Andrew JS, EWI, keyboards, vocals; Evan Woodle, drums, vocals).

Saturday, it’s electronic and “found sound” composer Shannon Kerrigan; Dio Jean-Baptiste & Geoff Traeger (drums and processed vocals); WA (Simon Henneman, bass, guitar; Gregg Kepplinger, drums); drummer Evan Woodle; keyboardist Otheim; trombonist Christian Pincock; and cellist Lori Goldston.

Sunday’s program is curated by bassist Bergman’s King Tears Bat Trip and also features Welch.

Cry & Roar

8 p.m. Friday-Sunday, Jan. 23-25, at Cafe Racer, 5828 Roosevelt Way N.E., Seattle; $5-$15 per night (tableandchairsmusic.com).
