Jazz Northwest For February 28

Feb 28, 2016

This Sunday on Jazz Northwest on KPLU we'll showcase a wide variety of jazz talent from around Puget Sound to Vancouver and Victoria BC.  Included are two new releases with a New York connection - Thomas Marriott with Ray Vega, and tenor saxophonist Roxy Coss (formerly of Seattle, now in New York), plus a new CD from Victoria BC singer Miranda Sage.

We'll hear two different ten-piece bands who will play music by veteran arrangers Bob Hammer and Milt Kleeb in separate upcoming engagements.  We also highlight a couple of the bands playing the Tacoma Jazz Walk next Saturday (3/5).

Jazz Northwest is produced by Jim Wilke for 88.5 KPLU.  The program airs Sundays at 2 PM Pacific and streams at kplu.org.  Past programs are available for streaming at jazznw.org.   Next week's show will be a concert by The Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra featuring Terell Stafford on trumpet.
