Some Of The Best Northwest Jazz of 2014

unnamed_(1).jpg

Top Ten lists abound at this time of year, but why Ten?  There were many great CDs by Northwest Jazz artists in 2014 and we play some of our favorites on Jazz Northwest.  It's not a Top Ten countdown, but we think these are representative of great jazz talent  from Seattle.    

Jazz Northwest is produced and hosted by Jim Wilke exclusively for 88.5 KPLU and kplu.org.  Next week (January 4), The Dave Peck Trio with Jeff Johnson and Eric Eagle plays a set recorded at Tula's in Seattle.

Jim has been a fixture on Seattle radio since 1961. He was the host of Jazz After Hours on Public Radio International from 1984-2014. Currently Jim has been producing Jazz Northwest for KNKX since 1988. This weekly program focuses on the regional jazz scene and frequently includes performances Jim records on location for Jazz Northwest.
