Benefit Concert for Cornish Jazz Program Founder Jim Knapp

Calling all jazz lovers: As part of the Earshot Jazz Festival, Seattle-area musicians will present a tribute to — and a benefit for — Cornish College jazz program founder Jim Knapp at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2 at the Triple Door, in Seattle. Trumpeter and composer Knapp recently lost his right leg to diabetes and has incurred medical expenses in excess of his insurance coverage. Expect the cream of Seattle players, including Cornish faculty, alums and students, but confirmed so far are the Jim Knapp Orchestra under the direction of saxophonist Mark Taylor, bassist Chuck Deardorf, pianist Jovino Santos Neto and vocalist Jay Clayton, who stuck around after her Earshot Jazz Festival show to help out her old friend.
