Rebecca Kilgore Trio debuts new album on Jazz Northwest
Portland singer Rebecca Kilgore has appeared on more than two dozen albums. The Rebecca Kilgore Trio has been playing around the Portland area for almost 10 years but has just issued their debut recording. Understated but with a solid swing and great phrasing, the trio includes three of the Rose City's top jazz musicians. We'll hear a couple of blue-tinged songs from their new release, "Vol.1" too.
Also on this week's show, Danny Kolke's Trio, Rick Leppanen, Kelly Johnson, Cory Weeds' Little Big Band, Kate Olson Ensemble and more regional jazz musicians.
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.
