Jared Hall

Selections from a new release by trumpeter Jared Hall will debut today on Jazz Northwest. Jared Hall is a relatively recent arrival on the Northwest jazz scene, and this album will go far to establish his credentials here. Also on this week's show is Paquito D'Rivera who blends jazz and classical music with humor, he'll be at Jazz Alley next week. Jovino Santos Neto plays solo piano in an original piece from his new album and we'll highlight a reviving jazz scene as more live jazz is becoming available.

Jazz Northwest is produced by host Jim Wilke and airs every Sunday afternoon at 2 PM Pacific on 88.5 KNKX and knkx.org. After broadcast, each show is archived and may be streamed anytime, and it's also available as a podcast.

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.
