Kenny Barron returns to Seattle
Pianist Kenny Barron is no stranger to Seattle stages. He first appeared here in 1963 as a nineteen-year-old pianist with the Dizzy Gillespie Quintet at The Penthouse in Pioneer Square. Now an NEA Jazz Master, Kenny Barron brings his trio to play Jazz Alley next Tuesday and Wednesday and we'll hear the trio on today's episode.
Also on this week's show are Diane Schuur, and The Cookers, and all-star septet appearing next week at the 202 Biamp PDX Jazz Festival in Portland. Alex Dugale, Johnaye Kendrick and other regional jazz stars will be heard too.
