“Seattle trombonist/composer Naomi Moon Siegel has developed a consistently captivating body of instrumental music built on stately folk-like melodies, coiled grooves, and lapidary voicings. An active and valuable presence on the Bay Area scene when she was an Oakland resident from 2006–2008, she makes her local debut as a bandleader April 17 at San Jose’s Art Boutiki with her California band featuring rising pianist Christina Galisatus, guitarist Justin Rock, and drummer Michael Mitchell on a double bill with saxophonist Steven Lugerner’s SLUGish Ensemble. She’s celebrating the release of her excellent new album Live at Earshot, which is being released on Slow and Steady, the Bay Area label co-founded by Lugerner. Siegel performs April 18 with the same quartet at Oakland’s Octopus Literary Salon on a double bill with Rice Kings (a duo featuring saxophonist Eli Maliwan and keyboardist Erika Oba), and closes her Bay Area run April 21 at San Francisco’s Center for New Music as part of a Slow and Steady showcase with tuba player Jonathan Seiberlich’s solo singer/songwriter project Jensen Engineering, and pianist Richard Sears performing solo.”
