The opening performances for this year's winter Portland Jazz Festival are, Gonzalo Rubalcaba performing Cuban Jazz piano:
Terence Blanchard, performing his Requiem for Katrina! Here is an excerpt:
Mid-week, I won two tickets to see this performance. I will arrive a little past the start time as I work earlier tonight. Yet this represents the beginning of a new life for me so, I am going no matter what! And, I would love to have a second person join me in this top flight experience this evening.
Seriously if you can attend and would like to join me with my extra ticket tonight, make contact here. QUICK!
