|Jazzing It Up!
We're so excited for this year's event! We recently started selling weekend passes, so we hope you'll take advantage of the savings for the entire three days of great jazz on the beautiful central Oregon coast.
Jazz greats are ready to jam, jimmy and roll at Jazz at Newport. Some of the highlights include "TGIF Jazz Friday Night" with sets headed up by Greg Goebel, Roseanna Vitro and the extraordinary Benny Green (pictured at left). And there's "Swingin' Saturday Night" with sets led by the legendary Bill Cunliffe and the talented Jeremy Pelt, as well as a "Dyanmic Duos" set featuring pair-ups of our music director Holly Hofmann with Bill Cunliffe and guitar legend Bruce Forman with bass maestro John Clayton.
Don't miss the "All That Jazz" panel discussion with Hoffman, Green, Pelt (pictured at right) and Houston Person on Saturday morning, or the jazz brunch (with the Halie Loren Trio, Bruce Forman and Mary Ann McSweeney) and the big band dance with Swing Shift.
More details of the artists playing at this year's event are available on our website.
