Portland Jazz Festival Presents: Cafe Jazz Trio
PDX Jazz Festival
Café Jazz: Brought on by an international interest in the music of France (gypsy swing), Brazil (samba, bossa, choro), America (Broadway/jazz standards). The duo will present a blend of music that fits these styles. Larry Munson , acoustic and 7 string guitar, will provide the interplay. Larry Nobori, clarinet/saxophone, will present a blend of international and acoustic music that will transport the listener.
A great combination of the Gypsy French and American swing styles, Brazilian/Latin, and Jazz/Blues/Broadway.
WEST COAST JAZZ ENSEMBLEWest Coast Jazz: Think 'cool' and then "Sail Away" and we'll take you on a trip when jazz was more laid back in the groove, and you could hear real melodies, played with smooth harmonies and energetic solos.
