Highlights from the final concert of the season by the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra will air on Jazz Northwest this Sunday at 2 on 88.5, KPLU. The concert includes music composed by Stan Kenton and Gerry Mulligan and played and recorded by both bands. Baritone saxophonist Bill Ramsay is featured prominently in Gerry Mulligan’s music, and pianist Randy Halberstadt takes on the role of Stan Kenton in the Kenton theme Artistry in Rhythm.
The Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra is co-directed by Clarence Acox and Michael Brockman and the concert was recorded last month at the Kirkland Performance Center. The SRJO will begin its 20th anniversary season on October 4-5 with a Basie Bash.
Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced by Jim Wilke exclusively for 88.5 KPLU. The program airs Sundays at 2 PM Pacific and is also available as a podcast at kplu.org.
