Hardcoretet (Art Brown – sax, Aaron Otheim – keys, Tim Carey – bass, Tarik Abouzied – drums) is a Seattle-based instrumental quartet that performs original material drawing from jazz, rock, soul and improvised music, among other styles. The band presents music written by each of its members and is reminiscent of fusion groups like Return to Forever and Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters, as well as more current modern jazz groups like Chris Potter’s Underground and Kneebody.
On stage, the band seeks to combine well-written and thought-provoking music with energetic, exciting, and moving performances. Trio Subtonic has made their mark on the Northwest independent and jazz music scenes, crafting three albums worth of original compositions by its family members: on keys, Galen Clark; on bass, Bill Athens; and on drums, Jesse Brooke. In 2009 “Cave Dweller” received national attention for striking a balance between unique groove, catchy melody, and overall drinkability. The incorporation of jazz and brazilian traditions with non-stop funky fervor poses the question to the dance floor: is it better to stop for a moment and listen, or to have never listened at all?
