Jazz Northwest previews some of the live jazz performances coming up and samples new releases by resident artists. Pianist Chano Domínguez; born in Cadiz, Spain and now living in our area; blends his Flamenco tradition with his love of jazz. He'll play a solo concert in the Art of Jazz Series at The Seattle Art Museum Thursday at 5:30 - and there's no charge for admission.
