Jazz Northwest: June 15, 2014

Jun 15, 2014

Jazz Northwest samples the wide variety of jazz available in the Pacific Northwest each week. This week we have a sneak preview of the forthcoming CD by the young Chilean saxophonist Melissa Aldana who will play a single gig on the West Coast next week.

It's at Jimmy Mak's in Portland presented by PDX Jazz. She was the winner of the Thelonious Monk Competition last year.

We'll also hear Greta Matassa and Susan Pascal (Bakes Place), Frank Vignola & Vinny Raniolo (Jazz Alley), Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood (Woodland Park Zoo), Kelby MacNayr & Bobby McFerrin (Victoria and Vancouver Jazz Festivals) and Stan Kenton plays Gerry Mulligan (SRJO concerts).
