Jerry Granelli at Banff Centre, 2018

Jerry Granelli died July 20 in Halifax, Nova Scotia at the age of 80. Granelli was an important part of the Seattle jazz scene in the 80s when he was on the faculty at Cornish College of the Arts. The percussionist/composer was part of a boundary-testing group of musicians here at the time including Ralph Towner, Gary Peacock, Julian Priester, Jay Clayton and Denny Goodhew. Music by this group will be heard on today’s episode of Jazz Northwest.

Also featured on this week’s show are selections by The Full Circle Jazz Ensemble, Daniel Hersog Jazz Orchestra and saxophonists Don Lanphere, Bud Shak and Denney Goodhew playing together!  

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.
