One of the main features of Jazz Northwest is regular location recordings wherever jazz is performed around the region, whether jazz clubs, concerts, festivals, museums or living rooms.  On September 6, JNW visits several locations with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra at Kirkland Performance Center, Mel Brown's Organ Quartet at the Britt Festival in Oregon, Jay Thomas and the Cantaloupes at Seattle Art Museum, and Ralph Towner and Denney Goodhew playing at Cornish College in 1991. 

Also this week, music from Wayne Horvitz' latest CD, a peripatetic reflection on the poems of NW poet Richard Hugo, and more.   Next week: violinist Regina Carter in concert with Benny Green, piano, John Clayton, bass, and Alvester Garnett on drums recorded at this Summer's Jazz Port Townsend, part of a series from this festival.

Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced by Jim Wilke exclusively for 88.5 KPLU and  The program airs each Sunday at 2 PM Pacific.  Programs are archived at
