Highlights from that appearance will air on Jazz Northwest, Sunday, July 21 at 2 PM PDT on 88.5 KPLU. The music includes mostly standards with one stellar original, "Verrazano Moon" by Joe Locke.
Internationally renown vibist Joe Locke tours widely but has a special connection with Seattle and has recorded on several occasions with these musicians and other Northwest residents. The recordings are available on the Seattle based Origin record label. Joe Locke's newest CD recently topped the JazzWeek poll of most-played nationally on jazz radio.
