Portland Jazz Festival: Nancy King, Glen Moore, Steve Christofferson

BRETT CAMPBELL
3 pm., Sunday February 24 | $29-$39.
Winningstad Theatre
1111 SW Broadway
 

[JAZZ VOCAL LEGEND] Nancy King is simply one of the finest musicians ever to come out of Oregon, and probably the greatest jazz singer alive, regularly receiving raves from The New York Times and veteran jazz writers and musicians. Since rising to fame in the 1960s Bay Area jazz scene, then returning to Oregon to raise her family, the Springfield native sustained two amazingly fertile, decades-long artistic partnerships with superb musicians: bassist Glen Moore, whom she met during their student days at the University of Oregon in 1960 before he went on to co-found the world-jazz-fusion group Oregon (they’ve recorded three albums), and pianist Steve Christofferson, whom she’s performed with since 1978, from weekly local gigs to world tours and recordings. In this Portland Jazz Festival showcase, she’ll make magic with both.
