The regional jazz scene is cranking up for Fall, with the new Calluna jazz club, the Bellevue Jazz and Blues Series next week, and The Earshot Jazz Festival starting the week after that. The Royal Room has resumed music, and Jazz Alley has had some great jazz groups in recent weeks. Trumpeter Thomas Marriott is prominent among regional artists in the resurgence of jazz this Fall. He's appearing in several locations this month. Music from his latest album "Trumpet Ship" is included in this week's episode.

Also on this week's show are selections by Cory Weeds, Greta Matassa, Jared Hall, Jacqueline Tabor and others.
