Included in this preview are The Clayton Brothers, Steffon Harris (pictured), Anat Cohen, René Marie, Cyrille Aimée & Diego Figueiredo, and Anthony Wilson – Sunday at 2 on Jazz Northwest from 88.5, KPLU.

Jazz Northwest will be on hand again to record festival concerts for later broadcast.  Next week (7/21) on the program, highlights from an evening with the Joe Locke/Thomas Marriott Quartet at Tula’s will be featured.
