The cover story on guitarist Julian Lage in the July issue of DownBeat reminded us of a duo with Julian Lage and saxophonist Ben Roseth playing at Egan's in Ballard in 2008. Both were in their early 20s at the time, but were already making waves. We recorded the duo and share some music from that night on this week's episode.
Also on this week's show, trumpeter Jay Thomas, saxophonist Harold Land's Quartet with Russ Freeman on piano at The Penthouse in Seattle in 1964, Vancouver singer Dee Daniels, a bi-coastal project with trumpeters Ray Vega and Thomas Marriott, Portland singer Rebecca Kilgore and others.
Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced by host Jim Wilke and airs Sundays at 2 p.m. Listeners may also subscribe to the podcast at KNKX, NPR, Apple, or Google.
