Syrinx Effect

October 30th, 2014

The 2014 Earshot Jazz Festival presented Syrinx Effect, the magical duo of Kate Olson (saxophone) and Naomi Siegel (trombone), two bright lights in the scene of Seattle women in jazz opening the bill on Friday night at Royal Room.

Siegel incorporates guitar pedals with her brass instrument and Olson plays soprano saxophone with laptop and other aural toys.
