Jazz Northwest shares favorite jazz records from 2018

Jan 4, 2019

Last week, Jazz Northwest shared some favorite jazz CDs from the past year. These are some we regarded as standouts, and we'll go back to again and again.  

Included are great collaborations and arrangements with Oliver Groenewald and Jay Thomas, Portland trumpet player Charlie Porter, Seattle pianist Randy Halberstadt, the duo of Hans Teuber and Jeff Johnson, Johnaye Kendrick, Ingrid Jensen, and Steve Treseler playing music by Kenny Wheeler, and others.  

There's also a blast from the past with Cannonball Adderley playing at The Penthouse in Seattle in the '60s just issued this year for the first time. 

Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced by host Jim Wilke, airing Sundays at 2 p.m. on KNKX and streaming at KNKX.org. After broadcast, a podcast is available at JazzNW.org.
