This year’s 11-day celebration includes headliners such as Ravi Coltrane, Charles Lloyd, Elvin Jones, Freddie Hubbard, Wes Montgomery, and Joni Mitchell.
Two special performances are set for the event. Both feature special guest Ravi Coltrane, and a host of jazz legends, in celebration of his father’s 90th birthday and mother’s influence and artistry.
The festival will also be celebrating the second annual Jazz Forward Competition, a high school competition whose winners will receive main stage exposure.
The 13th Annual Biamp PDX Jazz Festival will run from February 18 – 28 with 30 featured concerts at venues throughout Portland.
Tickets exclusively available to PDX Jazz members beginning October 4, and to the general public November 2.
