Human Spirit at The Ballard Jazz Walk on Jazz Northwest, 88.5 KPLU Sunday June 17

Human Spirit with guest Orrin Evans, piano, Thomas Marriott, trumpet, Mark Taylor, alto sax, Phil Sparks, bass, and Matt Jorgensen, drums played the annual Ballard Jazz Walk in April and the performance was recorded for Jazz Northwest. On this program, the group is heard in a complete set from Conor Byrne in Ballard playing selections from their new CD “Dialogue” recently issued by Origin Records. The program airs Sunday June 17 at 1 PM PDT on 88.5 KPLU and is streamed at

Pianist Orrin Evans is a New York-based pianist who also headlined with his own group at the mainstage concert at the Ballard Jazz Festival the following night. He also appears on the new CD.

The Ballard Jazz Walk is part of the annual Ballard Jazz Festival and includes a dozen or more venues featuring live jazz, all within walking distance of each other in old Ballard. Over 70 musicians played during the jazz walk and the music and people spilling out of the small clubs along the street provided a very festive atmosphere. The festival is produced by Matt Jorgensen and John Bishop with production coordination by Chad McCullough and supported by the Ballard business community.

Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced by Jim Wilke exclusively for 88.5 KPLU and is heard Sundays at 1 PM PDT. A podcast of the program will be available after the broadcast.
