In an ordinary year we would be broadcasting highlights from this Summer's Jazz Port Townsend this month on Jazz Northwest. But like all performance activities the festival was cancelled this Summer. This week we're presenting some location recordings from our archives including a couple of tunes played by Tamir Hendelman, Martin Wind and Matt Wilson making up an all-star trio in the cozy confines of The Upstage in Port Townsend. The enthusiastic audience surrounds the band in an exciting performance captured at the 2012 festival
Also on this week's show is a tune from a salute to Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker played by Bill Ramsay and Jay Thomas at Kellys in Tacoma in 1999. We'll also hear a couple of songs from a new CD by Diane Schuur and the Jill Townsend Big Band from Vancouver, and more.
