Jazz Northwest host, producer and recording engineer Jim Wilke sends news that this week’s program will feature Wycliffe Gordon as trombonist, trumpeter, conductor, singer and composer. The concert, recorded last weekend, was sold out and people were turned away, so this is an opportunity to hear Gordon in his many roles with the SRJO; below playing trombone.
From Jim Wilke’s announcement:
Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced exclusively for 88.5 KNKX and knkx.org. The program airs Sundays at 2 PM Pacific and after broadcast is archived for streaming at jazznw.org. The Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra is co-directed by Clarence Acox and Michael Brockman and presents a season of five pairs of concerts in Seattle and Kirkland, three of which are also given in Edmonds. In addition, the SRJO also presents annual performances of the Sacred Music of Duke Ellington, this year on December 30 and 31.
