The Blue Roosters

June 29 • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Blue Roosters are back. We keep trying but we just cannot get rid of these guys. Now they are back bigger and better than ever. A menagerie of some of the best blues talent in Oregon. The Roosters play Mississippi Delta Blues, New Orleans Jazz Blues, and a growing list of original Blue Rooster hits. Plus they FINALLY found a female singer to class their sorry state up to minimum community standards. You just never know with these cats.…

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on August 11, 2018 at 1:30pm

Grown out of American vaudeville, the variety show special of television's Golden Age — with the matching outfits, cotton candy and bubble color schemes, the countless celebrities and talents who broke in and "made it"and the endless stream of jaw-dropping musical performances — was where so many of our most vivid musical memories and dreams were born. In the spirit of this year's Festival theme, Masters and Muses, Michael Stone and Siri Vik, who are themselves among the “TV Generation”…

OFAM 2018: “Chuck On Vibes”

August 2 • 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Chuck Redd pays tribute to 4 brilliant vibes players who have had a profound influence both on the instrument's practitioners generally and on him personally: Lionel Hampton (1908-2002), Milt Jackson (1923-99), Terry Gibbs (1924-), and Red Norvo (1908-99). "Hamp," notes Chuck, "I actually didn’t know well, but I met him at The White House--that’s kind of a cool story! Milt and Red I knew quite well. And Terry, going strong at 92 is still a good friend and mentor. It…

One event on August 9, 2018 at 8:00pm

Given the breadth of her musical journey, it would be hard to guess just who has most inspired Siri Vik...but for those of us who have long known and loved her work one legend in particular comes immediately to mind: la môme piaf, "The Little Sparrow". In 2010 we presented Siri's first study of the legendary French chanteuse, simply called, La Vie en rose and have revisited that project twice since. "As I’ve continued to perform these heart-anthems over the…

One event on August 9, 2018 at 1:30pm

Vicki Brabham's muse, she tells us, was a book: a collection of unpublished lead sheets of classic Broadway songs and jazz standards transcribed and collated by a group of students at Berklee School of Music in Boston during the 1970s as a way of facilitating the playing and teaching classic jazz improvisation. The Real Book was (and remains) a must-have for professional musicians; Vicki ran into as a high school student in the '80s while serving as accompanist for a…

OFAM 2018: “Rhapsody In Gershwin”

August 4 • 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

"Rosenthal gets Gershwin's sensibility (with) a classical pianist's reverence for the material and a jazz musician's way of running off with it." — Kevin Whitehead, National Public Radio "Complex rhythms, lightning-quick runs, distinctive harmonization, melodic fluency and inventive improvisations make Rhapsody In Gershwin a refreshing approach to classically familiar material." — Elliott Simon, NYC Jazz Record Festival regulars are well familiar with Ted Rosenthal's masterful interpretations of historic jazz and Songbook classics, and most will remember his extraordinary performance of…

OFAM 2018: “Sinatra & Basie In Redd”

August 8 • 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

When we first asked Chuck Redd about the theme "masters and mentors", he responded with one word: Frank. Sinatra, he noted, has had a profound and lasting impact on jazz musicians in how they approach a song. Many have argued that he wasn't a jazz singer, but his elegantly nuanced deviations off the vocal line, his impeccable timing and phrasing impressed deeply. In this final evening of OFAM 2018, Chuck and company offer a predominantly instrumental study of the Sinatra…

L. Frank Baum’s beloved 1900 children’s tale, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, was hardly news to Depression-era America: a hugely successful 1903 stage production had achieved the longest Broadway run of the 1910s and toured the country for 8 years thereafter, and several silent Oz films were made between 1908 and 1933. But when M-G-M premiered its own version of the tale 79 years ago this month at the Strand Theatre in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, the impact on the American psyche…
