Shoup will read from his new book and play a duo with Niekrasz

Renowned Seattle free-jazz saxophonist Wally Shoup is celebrating the publication of his first book, Music As Adventure, a collection of writings from 1989 to 2009 dealing mostly about “the practice and implication of freely improvised music,” according to Shoup. He adds that the book also contains essays on “influential musicians, film noir, punk vs free jazz,” as well as philosophical observations and some poetry. Shoup will read from Music As Adventure and then play a brief duo set with drummer John Niekrasz
