Things We Did Last Summer On Jazz Northwest

A pair of quintet performances recorded last Summer and not previously broadcast are the focus on this week's show.  The first set is with an all-star quintet assembled for a concert in conjunction with the Seattle Public Library's Rhythm in Colors celebration of Seattle Jazz exhibition last Summer.  Johnaye Kendrick, Julian Priester, Dawn Clement, Phil Sparks and D'vonne Lewis perform a set of jazz classics and standards.  

The second set on this program was recorded on the opening night of Centrum's Jazz Port Townsend last July.  Tia Fuller, Sean Jones, John Hansen, Jon Hamar, and Matt Wilson played for a full house at The Old Whiskey Mill in Port Townsend.  

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.
