The spontaneity of jazz is best enjoyed in a live performance, and many great jazz records had their genesis in a jazz club or concert. Jazz Northwest frequently records live shows in clubs, concerts and festivals around the Pacific Northwest. On this week's show, we'll revisit some of those recordings and debut a newly-issued one... Nancy Erickson singing with The 200 Trio and Alex Dugdale at The North City Bistro in Shoreline. Also on the program are The Jay Thomas Quartet at Seattle Art Museum, Overton Berry & Bruce Phares at Tula's, Jacqueline Tabor at Seattle Jazz Vespers and The 200 Trio at Egan's Ballard Jam House.
Jazz Northwest is recording at Centrum's Jazz Port Townsend this weekend, and some of those concerts will be featured during the month of August starting next week, August 5. Jazz Port Townsend is Washington's oldest jazz festival.
