Jam Sessions PDX/Barcelona

Next Wednesday will be the second Billy Reed's Jazz Jam session. Last week some players showed up and a good time was had by all. The book I put together for the Jam contains mainly Blue Note era Hard-Bop tunes by composers like Horace Silver, Cannonball Adderly, Sam Jones, Lee Mongan, ect. The food is good again, the room has been remodeled, and the tables have black table cloths with candles, a big improvement over the previous vibe. The session is from 8-11pm at 2808 NE MLK jr. BLV, Portland.
Come out to play or just listen so we can convince the new management that Jazz is viable again.

On the June 7th I'm off to Barcelona for two weeks to host more jam sessions with guitarist Pere Soto. On June 8th we play a session at Plaza Universidad. On the 11th I head north to Italy and the French riviera, coming back to Barcelona on the 18th. On June 19th Pere and I play the main Jazz club in town, the Jamboree. Once again another Jam session. I'm really looking forward to playing with some Jazz musicians from the motherland (my family came over from Spain almost 400 years ago) and eating some authentic Paella! Pere Soto is scrambling for us so there may be a few more gigs on the horizon. Buenisimo!
