NOTE: Limited number of tickets will be available at the door.  The 2017 Biamp PDX Jazz Festival kick-off performance co-sponsored by Portland’5 Centers for the Arts features two contemporary jazz icons on the same stage at the same time –  NEA Jazz Master and saxophonist Branford Marsalis plus Grammy® Award-winning singer Kurt Elling. This incomparable duo, along with Marsalis’ longstanding quartet comprised of Joey Calderazzo (piano), Eric Revis (bass) and Justin Faulkner (drums) will perform in support of their recent album on Marsalis Music/OKeh Records, Upward Spiral. The album is a collection of tunes that blends songbook staples, jazz standards, and standards-to-be from a diverse array of composers. Every track they have selected confirms the beyond-category strengths of both the Quartet and Elling, allowing both vocalist and musician ample room to improvise, shine and hold the spotlight. After years of discussion and speculation, Marsalis and Elling have finally joined forces for a performance that is greater than the sum of its parts and […] Buy Tickets | Find out more »

Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner spent the last part of the new millennium’s first decade becoming the go-to bassist for practically every artist in black vanguard music. His father, Ronald Bruner Sr., was an accomplished drummer, working with artists like Diana Ross, the Temptations, and Gladys Knight. Bruner’s older brother, Ronald Jr., a Grammy®-winning drummer, has worked with esteemed artists such as Kenny Garrett and Stanley Clarke. The Bruner brothers were members of Young Jazz Giants, a quartet with Kamasi Washington and Cameron Graves, that released a self-titled album in 2004. Possessing a kinship and interest in the L.A.-led movement of genre-mixing black music, Bruner began collaborating with some of its foremost creators. His nimble, syncopated, groove-heavy basslines were heard on albums by Kendrick Lamar, Erykah Badu, Sa-Ra, Bootsy Collins, Snoop Dogg and others. Bruner’s most prolific and fruit-bearing musical relationship has been with DJ/producer/instrumentalist Flying Lotus, for whom he provided both […] Buy Tickets | Find out more »
