Although he didn't play that often around Seattle, some of guitarist Wes Montgomery's first professional gigs outside his hometown Indianapolis, Ind. were in Seattle with his brothers Buddy on piano and Monk on bass. Enough reason to include a couple of Montgomery Brothers tunes on the eve of the Wes Montgomery centenary, Monday March 6. Also on this week's show, Alex Dugdale, Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra, the Dave Peck Trio and more.

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.
