Host of Jazz Theater Every Monday from 1AM-3AM
John Gilbreath is the host of KEXP’s Jazz Theater, Sunday nights into Monday mornings, from 1am-3am. A rabid jazz fan since childhood, John has been immersed in the local and national jazz and performing arts scene as executive director of Earshot Jazz, Seattle’s non-profit jazz-support organization. He oversees Earshot’s monthly publication and educational programs, and has produced more than 1,000 far-reaching concerts, including the Seattle’s annual Earshot Jazz Festival each fall. He actively works with various Northwest arts organizations and national jazz consortia, hosts the weekly Caravan show on KBCS, and, in his rare spare moments, is a student of stone sculpture.
