Jeremy’s Pyramid Scheme- 4/7/18
19:30, Nitelite Lounge- 1920 2nd Ave, Seattle, WA
Jeremy Shaskus is a freelance saxophonist and composer/arranger living in the Seattle Washington area. Jeremy is adept at many styles. He has played everything from avant-garde free jazz to soul/dance music. He has shared the stage with the likes of Joe Piscapoe, Joe Mosello, Bernard Purdie, Chico Mendoza and other well known artists.
Jeremy’s Pyramid Scheme is another pebble dropped in the stream of what is classified as music. Though it is not totally in the vein of John Cage, it still has some of his musical elements. Without pretension it is an honor to say that influences come from all things music, mostly within the American improvised genre. This particular set up explores the organ trio/quartet format, however, instead of focusing on standard blues and groove oriented styles, Jeremy’s Pyramid Scheme goes one step further and adds an Ornettian element in which the barline is respected at the highest level.
