The annual Golden Ear Awards for outstanding achievement in Seattle jazz will be presented on March 13 at the Royal Room. There are five nominees in each of eight categories for individual and groups, including the Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame. This week on Jazz Northwest, we are previewing some of the nominees including Bill Anschell, the B'shnorkestra, the Westerlies, and Anton Schwartz.
The program also includes music by the New York-based Ryan Keberle and Catharsis which will play at the Royal Room following the Golden Ear Awards. Also on this week's show is an unpublished recording of the late Larry Coryell with the Gary Burton Quartet at the Penthouse in 1967.
