Hi, just wanted to drop by and say I enjoy reading your blog. My name is Zach Lapidus and I'm a senior studying jazz piano at Indiana University.

I was wondering: I'm really unfamiliar with the Portland jazz scene, but I am in Vancouver, WA visiting family for a while. I was wondering if there are any jam sessions going on in Portland or live jazz that I could go and see; I'd like to learn from the players here while I'm visiting.

Thanks,
Zach

Jimmy Mak's is the big Jazz venue in town, other than that things are kind of spread out around town. We've lost several Jazz clubs recently and there's not a lot of clubs right now.

Let me know if you'd like to take a lesson with our local piano genius Randy Porter and I can send you his contact info. He's the man here in P-town.

Hey, thanks a lot for the quick response. I would like Randy Porter's information, that sounds great.

Thanks for the information on the sessions; I tried checking portlandjazzjams.com and it said that Wilf's was no longer a jam session, but I also noticed the site hadn't been updated in a while so I figured it would be best to ask around.

Thanks a lot for the info and maybe I'll see you around at one of these.

Thanks,
Zach
