Jazz Northwest for July 25

Rhonda Stewart
Jovino Santos Neto

A new solo album by pianist and composer Jovino Santos Neto, "Luz" was recorded in one continuous session on a beautiful Fazioli piano at Northwest Pianos in Bellevue. Selections by Jovino and his mentor Hermeto Pascoal will be heard on this week's Jazz Northwest. 

Also on this week's show is a set of three classic jazz instrumentals that later had words added by Portland-based Dave Frishberg who sings and plays them at a concert in California, plus the Milt Kleeb Dektet, Danny Kolke and a new CD by the Portland-based Barry Deister Quintet.

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.
