Pianist and vocalist Nelda Swiggett will be able to handle the crowd hanging out at Rhythm and Rye on April 20 just fine. She performed for several years on Seattle's thriving late night salsa scene, then got up early on Sunday mornings to lay down soulful gospel riffs at her local church. Nelda's first ever favorite jazz recording artist was jazz singer legend Sarah Vaughn, and she has enjoyed adding more and more of her own vocals to her arrangements over the years. She's also performed at Bumbershoot, where everyone celebrates April 20 throughout the festival. Swiggett will perform with her husband, trombonist Clif Swiggett, in her new jazz sextet featuring unique, lively originals, top Seattle jazz musicians and rich arrangements for its three-horn front line. Nice.

NELDA SWIGGETT SEXTET, 8 p.m., Rhythm and Rye, 311 Capitol Way N., Olympia, $5, 360.705.0760
