This week on Jazz Northwest, Jim Wilke picks some of his favorite CDs issued in 2013 by Northwest jazz artists.  Not necessarily an exhaustive nor exclusive list, this hour does provide some examples of the high level of jazz recordings produced in the Pacific Northwest.   The complete list will be posted at jazzafterhours.org/bestcds.html which includes national and international releases as well.

Jazz Northwest is produced and hosted by Jim Wilke exclusively for 88.5 KPLU.  It airs Sundays at 2 PM Pacific and is available as a podcast at kplu.org following the broadcast.
