Jazz Northwest: Reigional artists play traditional to modern

Feb 17, 2019

We have recent releases ranging from traditional to modern this week on Jazz Northwest.

We'll begin with a lovely 1940 Ellington tune played by Portland trumpet player Charlie Porter and follow it with John Stowell and Dave Liebman playing one by Sidney Bechet from their new release.  Then along the way a song by Johnaye Kendrick, a great song by Canadian Kenny Wheeler played by Ingrid Jensen and Steve Treseler and we'll finish with new music from Samantha Boshnack's Seismic Belt, inspired by The Ring of Fire volcanoes that surround the Pacific Basin. This last album debuts next month with performances in Olympia and Seattle. 

Jazz Northwest airs each Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. on KNKX, and streams at KNKX.org.  The program is produced by host Jim Wilke, and after broadcast may be streamed on demand at JazzNW.org. Listeners also may subscribe to the podcast at KNKX, NPR, AppleGoogle or Spotify.
