Good news for jazz in Portland!
My fellow board member Joe Maita and I had a great night on Thursday enjoying a killer large ensemble at the Fremont Theater on 24th and NE Fremont, with Mary Sue Tobin and the Rebirth of the Cool Big Band. Songs of Gil Evans, Mingus and Horace Silver, among others. Really cool venue with great acoustics. I plan to attend the Quadraphones show here next Thursday! We are having several shows at this venue during the Festival in February. Check out our calendar for details!
