The popular Seattle vocalist Reggie Goings sings bebop, blues, ballads and a bossa-nova in concert on Jazz Northwest Sunday, June 24 at 1 PM PDT on 88.5 KPLU. The concert was presented by Earshot Jazz and recorded at the Seattle Art Museum earlier this month. The vocalist has roots in Texas and has become a fixture on the Seattle Jazz scene since he arrived in 1986. He has been featured in The Jazz Offering at Tula's on the first Sunday afternoon of each month for 13 years. His musical partner for many of those years was the late saxophonist Hadley Caliman.
Joining Reggie Goings in this performance are Randy Halberstadt, piano, Phil Sparks, bass and Jamael Nance on drums. The Art of Jazz series is presented by Earshot Jazz on the second Thursday of each month from 5:30 to 7:30. The next two concerts will take place outdoors at SAM's Olympic Sculpture Park on Elliot Bay. Eduardo Mendonça and Show Brazil, percussionists and dancers will perform on July 12.
