Looking ahead to your radio listening this weekend, Jim Wilke alerts us to a special edition of his Jazz Northwest. He traveled to the Port Townsend Jazz Festival to capture this concert. Jim Levitt’s photo captures (left to right) George Cables, Chuck Deardorf, Terell Stafford, Matt Wilson and Marquis Hill. Here’s Mr. Wilke’s announcement.
Two great trumpet players were featured together at Jazz Port Townsend this Summer. Terell Stafford and Marquis Hill traded brilliant solos during a matinee concert in McCurdy Pavilion at Fort Worden during the 2019 festival. With George Cables at the piano, Chuck Deardorf on bass and Matt Wilson at the drums, the quintet generated a lot of excitement for a near-capacity crowd. The concert was recorded for radio and will be broadcast on Sunday, August 18 at 2 PM Pacific Time on 88.5 KNKX and stream at knkx.org. (that’s the link to click on).
