PDX Jazz 2017 Festival Acknowledgement

PDX Jazz thanks all of its members, patrons, partners, sponsors, staff and volunteers for making the 2017 BIAMP PDX Jazz Festival a milestone achievement. A special thank you to the artists who traveled long distances to Portland who transformed the city for 11 glorious days along with our great local artists and Portland Jazz Master Mel Brown who reminded us that Portland is where jazz lives 365 days a year.

We are gearing up for our 15th Festival in 2018 set for February 15-25. But before we get to next year, we encourage you to make it out to see some of our fantastic Fall 2017 concerts including performances by Tia Fuller, Bill Charlap, Danilo Pérez, Mark Guiliana, The Bad Plus, Jason Moran, Dianne Reeves and many others. Thank you for helping us make Portland where jazz lives!

The PDX Jazz Festival

The PDX Jazz Festival is a multi-venue series of jazz events presented each February within Portland, Oregon. Nationally and regionally supported as a cultural tourism initiative in celebration of Black History Month, PDX Jazz Festival is dedicated to preserving America’s indigenous art form by presenting internationally recognized jazz masters alongside local jazz musicians. A series of jazz education and outreach programs that extend into Portland’s schools and neighborhoods is at the heart of the annual event.

Presented by PDX Jazz

In addition to the PDX Jazz Festival, PDX Jazz produces a variety of year-around performances that feature acclaimed national and international jazz musicians, as well as the renowned talent of Portland’s musician community. Our programming brings jazz to many of Portland neighborhoods; to The Mission Theater in the Northwest; to The Old Church in downtown; to the Alberta Abbey in the Northeast’s Alberta Arts district; and to the Aladdin Theater and Revolution Hall in the Southeast. We have also curated shows in Oregon Wine Country, and in communities beyond the region’s boundaries.
