In Seattle, the Earshot Festival is easing into the penultimate weekend of its six-week run. On Sunday, Jim Wilke, the veteran broadcast chronicler of jazz in the region, will present some of the musicians still to come at the festival. Here is his announcement:
This Sunday, November 8 at 2 PM on Jazz Northwest (88.5 KPLU and kplu.org), we’ll sample some of the musicians who’ll be appearing at venues around the Seattle area. Included is music by vocal artist Jay Clayton (pictured), clarinetist Anat Cohen, and pianist/composers Wayne Horvitz, Larry Fuller and Brad Mehldau. In addition, this program opens with music of Billy Strayhorn, whose centennial is being celebrated this year.
