What's on in Portland this season

Besides Herbie Hancock together with Kamasi Washington and in another event the pianist Connie Han in August, I’m looking forward to a wealth of artists this fall, like Billly Cobham with Randy Brecker, Emmet Cohen Trio, Shai Maestro, Veronica Swift, Steel House (Edward Simon on piano, Scott Colley on acoustic bass, and Brian Blade on drums). I’m not with the Chamber of Commerce, but this should be a reason for you to visit Portland, Oregon. Really, you need no reason to visit. It’s a really laid back place for all kinds music and food–worth a visit regardless.
