PDX Jazz has crafted an exciting, and unique festival for the 18th consecutive annual edition during Black History Month, featuring 16 Livestreams + 3 Films in 10 Days from 6 Cities. The Biamp PDX Jazz Festival is livestreaming from Portland, Havana, London, Johannesburg and Brooklyn this year, in a celebration of jazz music and culture. West coast musicians ‘the best of the west’; social justice; international shows, exclusive interviews, Portland & World premieres, education workshops; and women in jazz are themes woven into the fabric of this year’s event.
The festival will open with a performance by Thomas Lauderdale and China Forbes of the jazz pop band, Pink Martini. Among performances by a number of bands and musicians throughout the week, the GRAMMY award-winning Prince protégé, Judith Hill will perform from the stage at the Jack London Revue. The festival will close out with two very strong and diverse programs, Wayne Horvitz’ Royal We “live from The Royal Room in Seattle” feat. Seattle’s Skerik, Alex Guy, Geoff Harper, Iván Galvez and Andy Roth.
