Portland Jazz Festival

From The Seattle Times: Avant-garde pays off at Portland Jazz Festival. Ornette Coelman and Cecil Taylor headlined. Conclusion:

"With so much talk today about jazz dying out, moving to Europe, becoming stale or unfashionable, Portland's resurrection of the avant-garde was a smart move, galvanizing a large, often young audience."

Tord Gustavsen gets no rave, tho'. I'm not surprised.
