The Usual Suspects Big Band
If you've never been to Tula's on a Tuesday night, you may have been missing out. Unofficially dubbed Big Band Tuesday, Tula's has traditional-sized large ensemble jazz music in a variety of styles from traditional to experimental. Unfortunately they don't have a weekly gig anymore but you can still hear them at Tula's jazz club in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle.
The band includes such Seattle notables as Rich Cole, John Gofoth, Jay Thomas, Greg Williamson, and Vern Seilert, plus some new figures on the scene that if you haven't heard them yet, you will.
