Bob Ragan: Timeless
August 17 • 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm• $12
Come join a journey through musical time. Beginning with some of the earliest examples of recorded jazz, Bob will narrate a trip from the roots in New Orleans, St. Louis and Chicago through the early big bands of Harlem on to the combos of the West Coast era. Aided by some of the area’s top musicians, Timeless will keep you entertained with some great charts, talented soloists, and maybe a few stories about the selections and how they might fit into the grand scheme of early jazz.
Bob Ragan will be joined by Spencer Doidge, arranger and guitarist; Glenn Griffith, arranger and trombonist; Dave Bender, trumpeter extraordinaire, Christoph Greiner, one of the area’s top bassists; Don Elkington, the busiest drummer around; and Bill French, Portland pianist.
Presented by the Jazz Station.
