Women of Jazz Highlighted on Jazz Northwest

Ernestine Anderson, Jazz great, belts out a song at the Bellevue Jazz Festival.

Jim Wilke looks back on the fine form of vocalist Ernestine Anderson. Jim highlights songs from a 2011 performance at Dizzy’s Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center on Columbus Circle in New York City on this episode of Jazz Northwest. The Seattle Jazz icon is joined by a soulful group featuring Houston Person and Lafayette Harris Jr.

Another singer originally from Seattle is Diane Schuur and we’ll hear her playing piano and singing from her album, “Running on Faith”. And while we’re at it, this show includes a couple of female instrumentalists, Jessica Williams at the piano, and Ingrid Jensen on trumpet.

Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced by host Jim Wilke and airs Sundays at 2 p.m. on KNKX Public Radio. Listeners may also subscribe to the podcast on Apple or Google
