Jazz Northwest for April 14, 2019

Origin Records

Scenes, the northwest jazz trio with musicians hailing from Portland and Seattle whose sixth album "Destinations" was released on the Origin label last year.

Guitarist John Stowell, bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer John Bishop are all individualistic improvisers who blend and support each other with seemingly effortless grace and invention.  Bassist Jeff Johnson is featured on his composition "Long Prairie" on this edition of Jazz Northwest.   Congratulations to Origin label heads John Bishop and Matt Jorgensen for being named Seattle Jazz Heros by the Jazz Journalists Association. Bishop and Jorgensen also produce the annual Ballard Jazz Festival, coming this May 29-June 1, as well as a website and newsletter.
