Jazz Interlude

Jazz Interlude is a 3-piece instrumental jazz band located in Portland, Oregon. We specialize in jazz and swing standards from the 1930's to 1960's as well as a diverse array of original compositions written by various members of the band. Jazz Interlude has been on the Portland music scene since 2012. During that time, we've been fortunate to have a monthly residence at O'Connors Vault where we continue to sell out the venue on a regular basis. We have also played at Mazza's, Camellia Lounge, Bar Carlo, Portland Pairings Wine Shop and special events such as the Newborn Oktoberfest, National Night Out, weddings, holiday parties, corporate parties, fundraisers, and many others

MUSICIAN Born:

Anthony K Wright

Tony began playing brass at school, before moving to Clarinet at the age of 12, and Saxophone a bit later. He turned professional in the early ‘80s, playing sax as a session musician in London, and running various rock bands in night clubs and on the gig circuit in London and South Wales. He maintained his interest in the Clarinet, and in the early ‘90s began playing jazz on the circuit in the West Country, whilst teaching on the Performing Arts syllabus at North Devon College. Moving to Surrey in ‘98, he is now widely known as a Reeds teacher, with students ranging from adult beginners to advanced Grade 8 and Diploma-level specialists

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
