Bola Sete at the Penthouse in Seattle.

More music from live broadcasts by Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete from The Penthouse in 1966 on this week's Jazz Northwest. Bola Sete was the real deal in the early years of the Bossa Nova wave that swept through the US in the 60s. He's captured here in an intimate, small club experience with the audience on three sides of the small stage, recorded from the live radio show as it aired. These performances were recently issued for the first time on a 3 CD album.

Also on this week's show are Greg Williamson, Dina Blade, and The Jim Knapp Orchestra - and that's only the first half of the show.

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.
