Woodwinds and brass on Jazz Northwest
It's relatively rare that musicians become proficient with both woodwinds and brass instruments. Even rarer are two with the same hometown, the late Floyd Standifer and Jay Thomas were both active in the Seattle scene. We'll open this week's show with one tune from each, but you'll have to tune in to hear which one plays which instrument on this week's episode.
Also featured this week, singers Jan Stentz and Kelley Johnson, Thomas Marriott, Overton Berry, Phil Parisot, and Harold Land's Quartet from a 1964 live broadcast from The Penthouse in Seattle. The album was named one of the best historical albums of 2021 by DownBeat Magazine.
