As a longstanding staple within the Portland Jazz community, drummer Ron Steen has been in the trenches of Portland’s music scene, helping to grow and sustain it over the past four decades. And part of how he has done that is to create spaces for music to occur, and for people such as myself to participate, for without Ron’s contribution it’s debatable as to if I’d be doing what I’m still doing. So on this night, I’m honored to be stepping into the shoes of such a well respected individual by hosting one of his famous Monday night Jazz jam sessions at The 1905, where the majority of the city’s best musicians can be found under one roof. So come enjoy a joyous and inspiring atmosphere at the only place qualified to lay claim to the title of Jazz Central here in the city of Roses!!!
