Jazz Across The Generations This Week


We like examining the continuum of jazz (thank you, John Gilbreath!) on Jazz Northwest. The students become the rising stars, and the rising stars become the teachers of the next generation and so it goes. Don Lanphere and Larry Coryell were major figures in Seattle jazz, and Roxy Coss was one of Don's students and played in the Garfield Jazz Band under Clarence Acox. Today, Roxy is active on the New York Jazz Scene. We'll sample her newest CD and also one by pianist Ariel Pocock who was a product of Newport High School and has also gone on to national prominence. Also on this week's show are recent releases from The Jim Cutler Jazz Orchestra, Victoria-based singer Miranda Sage, Seattle singer Dina Blade's new CD recorded in Brazil, and a bi-coastal meet-up with Seattle's Jay Thomas and New York-based Gary Smulyan and more. Jazz Northwest airs every Sunday afternoon at 2 PM Pacific on 88.5 and streams at kplu.org. The program is recorded and produced by Jim Wilke and is available for
