We are pleased to continue the collaboration with the good people at the Seattle Art Museum in programming and presenting the Art of Jazz Series, now in its 17th year. The after-work concerts are free with museum admission -- a great bargain given the two-for-one line up of fine jazz and art exhibits set for 2014.

We are grateful to the Seattle Art Museum for their support of this series, and for inviting us to be a part of it. Thanks, too, to KPLU Radio for their support of the Art of Jazz. We'd especially like to thank Jim Wilke, who records most of the concerts for broadcast on his Jazz Northwest program, Sunday afternoons, from 1 to 2pm on 88.5, KPLU.

Join us for the Art of Jazz, 5:30 to 7:30pm, Seattle Art Museum Downtown.
