2019 Cathedral Park Jazz Festival | Free, The Longest Running Jazz & Blues Festival West of the Mississippi

July 19
4:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Venue

The free Cathedral Park Jazz Festival [CPJF] will take place for the 39th consecutive year on Friday July 19, Saturday July 20, and Sunday July 21, 2019, in Cathedral Park under the historic St Johns Bridge in North Portland.  This year’s festival is presented by the Oregonians Credit Union and organized by the Jazz Society of Oregon (JSO).

Among the Portland-area jazz, blues, R&B and funk musicians who will be performing at this year’s festival: trumpeter Farnell Newton and the Othership Connection; vocalist and pianist John Gilmore in a tribute to Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra (Gilmore’s father was Sinatra’s record producer in the 1950s); guitarist Dan Faehnle of Pink Martini fame; drummer Tyrone Hendrix presenting PDX Soul featuring Ronnie White; and the Cherry Blossom Hot 4.

The Festival opens Friday evening with R&B, blues, and funk performers, while jazz is the focus on Saturday and Sunday. [See the complete three-day schedule below.]

“This is the 39th consecutive year of the festival, which was started by a group of volunteers looking to commemorate the construction of spectacular Cathedral Park – one of the city’s most beautiful settings,” said Dan Presley, Jazz Society of Oregon’s Vice President. “It has evolved into a celebration of Portland’s diverse jazz music scene. It’s still free and still run by volunteers. It is also the longest-running community event in the Greater Portland area.”
