Portland Jazz Fest Tickets available to volunteers!


Hello, I am the self-proclaimed leading reporter on the Portland Jazz Festival. But I need help!! I just did the leg work to get the following tickets and any reporters or jazz programmers who are interested in attending with me and/or picking up my slack for the shows that I can not make it to at all. I will be bringing a field recorder to the shows (no artists are providing music releases) and it would be ideal to have someone interested in hustling interviews. I recieved 2 tickets to the following shows and next to each show I will write whether or not I'm planning to attend.

Joshua Redman

Bill Charlap

Spanish Harlem Orchestra (2 available)

The Bad Plus (2 available)

Portland Jazz Orchestra

Cecil Taylor

Maceo Parker

Voices from the Edge


This Thursday on Voices from the Edge: Should reparations be paid to close the racial wealth gap caused by housing and lending discrimination? An interview with OSU's Jonathan Kaplan.

 Historic housing and lending discrimination against black Americans has created a significant discrepancy in their overall wealth. The average black American has only about 15 percent as much wealth as the average white American, even though black Americans earn about 60 percent as much as white Americans. And at every income level, white Americans have much more wealth than black.
