When pianist Lynne Arriale released her first CD in 1994, KPLU began playing music from it right away.  It was clear to us that Lynne had that "something extra" that separates good musicians from great musicians.

Over the course of her career she’s continued to build on that quality, so we were especially pleased to finally welcome her as a guest artist in our Seattle performance studio.

She arrived with bassist, Omer Avital, and drummer, Anthony Pinciotti.  Omer and Anthony joined her on three songs, Call Me, Dance of The Rain (featuring Omer playing the oud) and Crawfish Gumbo.  In keeping with that ‘something extra,’ Lynne also performed a solo piano piece, And So It Goes, from her brand-new CD, Lynne Arriale—Solo.

You can listen to the entire performance above.

Abe grew up in Western Washington, a 3rd generation Seattle/Tacoma kid. It was as a student at Pacific Lutheran University that Abe landed his first job at KNKX, editing and producing audio for news stories. It was a Christmas Day shift no one else wanted that gave Abe his first on-air experience which led to overnights, then Saturday afternoons, and started hosting Evening Jazz in 1998.
