This week on Jazz Northwest, Portland-based jazz singer Nancy King teams with pianist Steve Christofferson in a JazzVox "home concert." Nancy King was named to the Jazz Society of Oregon Hall of Fame in 2001, the city of Portland named Feb. 22, 2008 as Nancy King Day, and she was recognized as the third Portland Jazz Master in 2013.
In this intimate, Seattle concert she's joined by pianist and composer Steve Christofferson with whom she's often worked for over 35 years. They've toured internationally and recorded two CDs together, one with The Metropole Orchestra of the Netherlands. Nancy has also recorded with Glenn Moore, Ray Brown, and others. Her latest is a live album with Fred Hersch at The Village Vanguard in New York.
Over 200 JazzVox concerts have been produced by Nich Anderson since 2008, most featuring vocalists. Performances take place in living rooms in Seattle, Camano Island, Bainbridge Island, Federal Way and Renton. The concerts are produced by Nich Anderson with the assistance of the homeowners and friends. Information about upcoming concerts can be found at jazzvox.com.
