It's not easy keeping up with the many musical pursuits of Tim Kennedy. The Seattle-based multi-instrumentalist, singer and composer isn't letting pandemic conditions slow him down, either. He's just released TK Special Trio featuring Home Team, created and produced at his place.

This Saturday, KNKX presents the 100th episode of The New Cool. This weekly two-hour adventure through the world of cutting edge modern jazz was inspired and informed by our listeners, and wouldn't be here without your support. THANKS! We'll celebrate with more new releases, exclusive studio session performances, and a few of the world-class musicians in our own backyard who continue to make this music their own.

May 16 - 19, the Ballard Jazz Festival presents a big change in scheduling this year, but you'll find the same fantastic lineup of the Northwest's finest jazz musicians and internationally acclaimed talent over 4 nights in the city's increasingly crowded fishing village. Let's take a look at the changes, and preview some of my "must-see" performances.

The New Cool: Modern Jazz In The KNKX Studio

This week in the KNKX studios brings two more fresh approaches to non-traditional jazz. Modern music from the Barrett Martin Group and Freudian Slurp is informed by the sounds of rock, electronic music, funk and soul. Both are based in the Seattle area, where The New Cool has been finding plenty of inspiration and material for the show.
