    Jovino Santos Neto – “February 1″
    From the CD Veja O Som – See The Sound on (Adventure Music)
    Jovino is one of the real treasures of the Seattle jazz scene. He’s an amazing player, inspirational teacher and an amazingly positive cat to be around. Always one to find the joy in the act of creating music, Jovino is as much fun to watch as he is to listen to. His latest CD, a double-album, features 20 duets with musicians from around the world, including Gretchen Parlatio, Airto Moreira, Joe Locke, Paquito D’Rivera and more. This one features Israeli clarinetist Anat Cohen. Jovino has been playing at the newly remodeled Vito’s recently with a rotating cast of players. This week he’s with bassist Burt Boice and some special guests.
    Upcoming show: Fri., May 13th @ Vito’s

    Janette West – “Love For Sale”
    From the CD Snapshot (Pony Boy Records)
    Janette has been honing her chops and playing with her regular quartet for a few years now, and it shows on her newest recording. The band is tight! She has Eric Verlinde on piano, Chuck Kistler on bass, her husband Marty Tuttle on drums and Ricardo Guity on congas. She swings her way through a nice set of standards. You have two chances to catch Janette and Co. this week, so don’t miss out!

    Eric Verlinde – “Moonlit Canyon”
    From the CD Firewalker (self-produced)
    Eric is truly one of the busiest cats on the Seattle jazz scene. He plays solo and restaurants, leads the weekly jam session at the Owl ‘n Thistle, backs numerous singers, and plays with his trio as well. He’s also constantly smiling and bringing his positive vibes to the bandstand. We like that. He’s with his trio on his latest CD featuring Chuck Kistler on bass and Andre Thomas on drums. In addition to playing with Janette this week (see above) he has a solo gig at Boxley’s, which is not to be missed!
    Upcoming show: Wed., May 18th @ Boxley’s
  5. These next two bands are featured a couple times this weekend at Honk Fest West, the annual free, three-day, community-supported music festival devoted to marching bands, drum corps, samba lines, and anything acoustic and mobile that makes a ruckus. Music, street performers, dancers, and artistic appreciators will be crawling the city at different locations throughout the weekend. See the website for full details.
