(Update – tickets will be available at the door for tonight’s concert!) Seattle-based guitarist, composer, bandleader and educator Greg Ruby specializes in jazz music from the first half of the 20th century. Described as “Seattle’s premier hot guitarist,” by Earshot Jazz Magazine, his most recent recordSyncopated Classic was awarded the “Golden Ear Award” in the Northwest Recording of the Year category.

The Greg Ruby 6 will be playing the compositions & arrangements of the great 1930s swing guitarist, Oscar Aleman. An unsung hero of the Parisian jazz guitar scene of the swing era, Aleman rivaled the infamous Django Reinhardt. Ruby will also be debuting new original compositions. Featuring an all-star Seattle lineup with Greg Ruby (lead guitar), Julian Smedley (violin), Saul Cline (reeds), DVonne Lewis (drums), Ryan Hoffman (rhythm guitar) and Matt Weiner (bass).
