"Little Summer" by David O'Suna Live at Jazz Alley 1982
The Metrognomes started out as a way for Wayne Cockfield and myself to play some live jazz(1980). I secured a weekly night at the Pioneer Square Tavern (PST) in Seattle and we went about finding a band. We heard Jeff Fiorini at a Deems Tsutakawa gig in the International District. Jeff introduced us to Jack Klitzman who introduced us to Lars Larson. The next week we played without any rehearsals. Pull out the charts and go. Lars had to leave and Ken Deluge replaced him on drums. The PST let us play whatever we wanted. It was electric jazz. We played in several more jazz clubs in Seattle and the 1982 Bellevue Jazz Festival. Wayne left and was replaced by Mike Benson on keyboards. Lars rejoined the band and we played Jazz Alley in 1982 and disbanded soon after.
