Wayne Horvitz, The Pianist and the Poet

Wayne Horvitz

The keyboardist and composer Wayne Horvitz made his name in New York, but for over 20 years, he's been synonymous with his adopted hometown of Seattle. He's one of the key players of the town's improvised music community -- as a player, a bandleader, a venue operator, and a teacher at several levels. Jazz Night returns to Seattle to track his influence on the city's jazz ecosystem through his students, his collaborators, and a concert he leads during the annual Earshot Jazz Festival of music inspired by the late local poet Richard Hugo.
