We had you with the puppies, right? But listen to the music! This week's Jazz Northwest  opens with one of those fun-filled compositions and arrangements by Phil Kelly played by an all-star big band of mostly Northwest resident musicians. Also this show includes a recent album by Brent Irwin and the Jazz Misfits, Cory Weeds, Greta Matassa, Fred Radke and Primo Kim and others.

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.
