Saxophonist Jim Pepper brought his Native American heritage to the fore with his memorable composition "Witchi Tia To." The late saxophonist is heard playing it on this week's show. We will also hear music by Tall & Small featuring saxophonist Pete Christlieb and trombonist Linda Small. We will also hear music by Phil Parisot, Diane Schuur and others.

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.
