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.
