The KNKX fall pledge drive begins this Monday and ends Friday, meaning The New Cool will be uninterrupted this season. We'll celebrate by offering copies of the latest Barrett Martin Group album to listeners who chip in to support KNKX's modern jazz show before the drive begins.

Drummer, composer, band leader Barrett Martin returns with a new CD this spring. The worldwide release date for Songs of the Firebird is May 10. The official release show, in conjunction with the release of Martin's new book of short stories, "The Way of the Zen Cowboy," is June 1 at the Royal Room. You'll hear the world broadcast premier — of the CD, not the book — coming up Saturday on The New Cool.

This Sunday on Jazz Northwest, Spanish pianist Chano Domínguez and his ensemble will be heard in part 2 of a concert broadcast on 88.5 KPLU and streaming at kplu.org at 2 PM Pacific.  The pianist and composer led his ensemble playing to a capacity audience at Teatro Zinzanni in Seattle as part of the 2015 Earshot Festival.
