The Earshot Jazz Festival continues through November 18 with a wide variety of performers in various venues around Seattle. Earshot's Executive Director John Gilbreath talks with Jim Wilke about some of artists appearing in the latter half of the festival.
The music includes Flamenco jazz by Chano Dominguez, the brass quartet The Westerlies, solo guitarist Mimi Fox, retro bopper Jacob Zimmerman, the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra celebrating the Billy Strayhorn centennial, and reunions with former Seattle musicians Jay Clayton and Art Lande.
Jazz Northwest is produced by Jim Wilke exclusively for KPLU and kplu.org. Previous programs are archived at jazznw.org. Next week (11/1), highlights from a Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra concert featuring the collaborations of Frank Sinatra and Count Basie with guest vocalist Danny Quintero.
