The Jazz Society of Oregon’s 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.

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 and the Cello Project; and the Cherry Blossom Orchestra.

Stay tuned – the complete schedule of performers playing will be announced in May.

“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, so everyone is welcome. It is also the longest-running community event in the Greater Portland area.”

The CPJF planning committee is still looking for community sponsors and volunteers to fill a variety of positions. Sponsors may contact the festival planning committee by emailing [email protected].  Also check  https://jazzoregon.com/festival. Volunteers may sign up by  emailing [email protected] and check out https://jazzoregon.com/festival where there is a link to the signup system.
