Summer afternoons seem made for jazz, hot and cool. For people heading home after Jazz Port Townsend, we lead off this Sunday's show with a festival favorite, George Cables. Although he's a native New Yorker, he's played at Port Townsend so many summers we've begun to think of him as a local piano hero, at least in July!

Sunday's show also features new and recent CDs by The Jim Cutler Jazz Orchestra, Ann Reynolds, Larry Fuller and others, plus updates on best bets for live jazz in the Seattle area in the coming week. 

Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced by host Jim Wilke and airs Sundays at 2 p.m. Listeners may also subscribe to the podcast at KNKX, NPR, AppleGoogle or Spotify.

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.
