Daniel Hersog Jazz Orchestra

A rich collection of original compositions and arrangements by Daniel Hersog has just been issued on a new CD "Night Devoid of Stars" to be issued this week. Recorded in Vancouver BC, the orchestra includes some outstanding talent from Western Canada and a pair of pieces from the album will be featured today on Jazz Northwest. 

Also on this week's show are recent releases by Kate Olson's KO Ensemble at The Royal Room, Jenny Davis with Jovino Santos Neto, and a classic Floyd Standifer performance at the New Orleans Creole Restaurant in 1996, and more. 

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, Apple, or Google.

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.
