The Portland Jazz Master is a designation recognizing a regional artist or other jazz community member for their work and contributions to jazz in the region.   This initiative is the highest form of recognition by our organization.

The 2012 Portland Jazz Master, recognized during the 2012 Portland Jazz Festival, is trumpeter and educator Thara Memory.  The PDX Jazz Master designation was initiated in 2011, that year honoring pianist and vocalist Dave Frishberg.

Portland has a wealth of artists and other jazz community members whose resonance in the community is truly outstanding and deserving of recognition.  We welcome your suggestions for the 2013 Portland Jazz Master nominees, and hope that you will email us with your recommendations.
