Exuberant Brazilian music and dance made for a perfect summer concert at the Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park earlier this month when Earshot Jazz presented Eduardo Mendonça and Show Brazil for this month’s Art of Jazz concert. Seven musicians and three dancers, plus audience participation provided additional reasons to celebrate summer in Seattle at the park on Elliot Bay.
Excerpts from the concert will air on Jazz Northwest, Sunday July 22 at 1 PM PDT on 88.5 KPLU and will stream at kplu.org. This program also includes updates on the live jazz scene and a preview of next weekend’s Jazz Port Townsend, July 26-28. Jazz Northwest will be recording concerts at Jazz Port Townsend for future shows.
Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced by Jim Wilke exclusively for 88.5 KPLU. The program airs every Sunday at 1 PM PDT and is available as a podcast following the broadcast.
