Jazz Northwest features a variety of regional jazz talent every Sunday afternoon at 2, including classics like the Kellys Heroes band that developed at Red Kelly's bar in Tacoma in the 90s. Milt Kleeb and Bill Ramsay were old hands at arranging by that time and their skills are on display in the opening of this week's show.
Also featured on today’s show, more recent additions to our jazz scene include Johnaye Kendrick and Jared Hall plus standbys like Portland's Dan Balmer, and Seattle singer Greta Matassa. It's also our Spring Fund Drive edition, so listen and make a pledge to support this show and other jazz programming on Sundays. Just click on the green button!
