Add to Calendar 2014-08-07 7:00 pm 2014-08-07 "pete Kelly's Blues": the Jazz Party Does the '40s and '50s at Oregon Festival of American Music at The John G Shedd Institute for the Arts The 2014 festival jazz party goes to the movies for a second year with an evening of small group standards-based jazz drawn this year from film music of the 1940s and '50s (including both originals and classic interpolations). Ken and company will deliver everything from solos to group jams, with a solid mix of vocals thrown in. The format for the evening will be our usual jazz party: top-ticketed cabaret seating down front of the main floor, and reserved seating up in the balcony, with a full bar in the Tykeson Lobby. We get going at 7 pm--an hour earlier than the Festival's other evening concerts. While dressing up is not required, in the spirit of the event we encourage it (especially if you go period!).

Ken has put together a list of 50 tunes (available here online and in the program at the party) and the evening’s program will be shaped by audience requests. Be prepared for a relaxed evening featuring some of the best standards-based jazz and cabaret anywhere!
