Gail Pettis Jazz for Japan Concert
Since the advent of the tragedy, Seattle musicians have rallied to aid those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Local efforts to alleviate the suffering in Japan persist with Seattle-based jazz vocalist Gail Pettis, who will be playing at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley for two “Jazz for Japan” shows, April 19-20, 7:30 p.m. All donated covers collected will go to the Japanese Red Cross Society. Pettis has previous musical ties to Japan. In 2006 she performed as a guest artist in Kobe, a Seattle sister city, as part of a tour for an artist-in-residence program at the Amersfoort Jazz Festival in the Netherlands. Seattle jazz fans awarded Pettis last year with the Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award for Northwest Vocalist of the Year.
