Jazz Northwest For January 25th

Over 3 decades of jazz from the Pacific Northwest is featured on this week's Jazz Northwest Sunday, January 25 at 2 PMPacific.  An upcoming two trombone tribute to Frank Rosolino and Carl Fontana will feature Rodger Fox (NZ) and David Marriott Jr (WA) at the Royal Room.  It seemed like a good excuse to listen again to the spectacular trombonists Rosolino and Fontana as they played at The Bayside in Vancouver BC in 1978.

More recent selections include solo, duo and big band recordings by pianist Jessica Williams, Dave Liebman and John Stowell, and the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra in concert in Kirkland. Some picks for live jazz in the area are also included in this show.
