This week we kick off with the modern day jazz singer who is making waves Sara Gazarek. From there, we dig some new sound from NYC cat Mike Casey as we delve into the modern jazz sounds, we profile the veteran Ray Obiedo and look into new music from the great Kevin Sun. We also explore the old world of jazz with Glen Gray and the Casa Loma Orchestra and Stan Getz. We then wrap everything up with some new latin jazz from the great Portland-based Kerry Politzer.
