Modern Jazz: A Collection of Seattle’s Finest Jazz

The first in a series of Origin compilation CDs, “Modern Jazz” reflects some of the best of Seattle’s deep and rich jazz scene. From the refined, ensemble work on “Incompatibility” to the Brazilian/R&B groove of “Appalachian Soul Camp,” or the virtuostic pianistics of “Notoriety” to the wide open vamps of “For Tony,” “Modern Jazz” displays respect for the tradition with the progressive vision of a special musical community.
