Jim Wilke reports that on his Jazz Northwest this Sunday, January 8, he will feature the distinguished vocalist Nancy King in a private concert with pianist Steve Christofferson. That will be at 2 p.m. PST on the radio in the Seattle-Tacoma area at KNKX 88.5 FM and on the internet at http://knkx.org. From Jim’s announcement:
Nancy King was named to the Jazz Society of Oregon’s Hall of Fame in 2001, the City of Portland named Feb.22 2008 as Nancy King Day, and she was recognized as the third Portland Jazz Master in 2013. In this intimate Seattle concert she’s joined by pianist and composer Steve Christofferson with whom she’s often worked for over 35 years. They’ve toured internationally and recorded two CDs together, one with The Metropole Orchestra of the Netherlands. Nancy has also recorded with Glenn Moore, Ray Brown, and others. Her latest is a live album with Fred Hersch at The Village Vanguard in New York.
Dedicated King followers need no introduction. Other Rifftides listeners may. Here she is with Christofferson in a 2009 performance of “Zanzibar,” words and music by Dave Frishberg.
Jim Wilke adds:
Over 200 JazzVox house concerts have been produced since 2008, most featuring vocalists. Performances take place in living rooms in Seattle, Camano Island, Bainbridge Island, Federal Way and Renton. Nich Anderson produces the concerts with the assistance of the homeowners and friends. Information about upcoming concerts can be found at jazzvox.com.
