(Comet) Seattle saxophonist workaholic Skerik has a collaboration rap sheet that's as long as a 19th-century Russian novel. Major players like Medeski Martin & Wood, Larry Coryell, Funky Meters, and Buckethead tap him for his versatile ability to range from leather-lunged blasts of sonic action painting to mellow sonority. Skerik's own project number in the double digits. The man is a riveting dynamo onstage. Local quartet Industrial Revelation (Evan Flory-Barnes, Ahamefule Oluo, D'Vonne Lewis, and Josh Rawlings) is one of those freewheeling jazz bands that revel in stylistic diversity—great, expressive players having fun stretching lithe musical muscles in several different formations.
