This Sunday (2/28/16) on Jazz Northwest on KPLU we’ll showcase a wide variety of jazz talent from around Puget Sound to Vancouver and Victoria BC. Included are two new releases with a New York connection – Thomas Marriott with Ray Vega, and tenor saxophonist Roxy Coss (formerly from Seattle, now in New York), plus a new CD from Victoria BC singer Miranda Sage. We’ll hear two different ten piece bands who will play music by veteran arrangers Bob Hammer and Milt Kleeb in separate upcoming engagements. We also highlight a couple of the bands playing the Tacoma Jazz Walk next Saturday (3/5).
Jazz Northwest is produced by Jim Wilke for 88.5 KPLU. The program airs Sundays at 2 PM Pacific and streams at kplu.org. Past programs are available for streaming at jazznw.org. Next week’s show will be a concert by The Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra featuring Terell Stafford on trumpet.
