This week's show includes jazz groups you can hear around the area this week (e.g.Jazz Police, Adam Kessler, Jacqueline Tabor), and a preview of a soon to be released album of the Wynton Kelly Trio and guitarist Wes Montgomery playing at The Penthouse in Seattle in 1966.  

The album will be released on limited edition vinyl LP on Record Store Day, April 22, and it comes from tapes of live and direct broadcasts produced by Jim Wilke and never circulated since the live broadcasts. A deluxe CD version will follow in May.
