Celebrating John Coltrane at 90

John Coltrane’s musical legacy is undeniable; his everlasting influence as a seeker of truths transcendent. John Coltrane at 90 is a musical retrospective that will cover many aspects of John’s career, including showcasing musicians who have played with him in the past, tributes to well-known collaborators and special performances that will highlight the Festival’s concerts. One in particular will pay tribute to John’s wife, Alice Coltrane. No jazz musician has been immune to John’s influence. His spirit lives on and will continue to endure for decades to come.

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 Jimmy Mak’s in The Pearl; to The Old Church in downtown; to the Alberta Abbey in the Northeast’s Alberta Arts district; and to the Aladdin Theater in Southeast. We have also curated shows in Oregon Wine Country, and in communities beyond the region’s boundaries.
