Jazz Northwest for a summer Sunday

Jul 21, 2019

We're in the middle of summer jazz festival season. Outdoor concerts are going on around the country including Seattle and Tacoma. Jazz in The Valley (Ellensburg) and Jazz Port Townsend July 25-27 welcome audiences next week. Today Jazz Northwest, we're planning a breezy, lyrical, songful selection of music that will highlight a new CD by Vancouver saxophonist Mike Allen, songs sung by Greta Matassa, Elena Maque and Karin Plato, plus Larry Fuller who returns to Seattle later this month, and Northwest favorites Jay Thomas and Randy Halberstadt.

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, AppleGoogle or Spotify.
