Jazz Interlude 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. We work hard to suit your needs, whether it's a casual backyard gathering or a black-tie formal gala. You tell us what you need, and we will accommodate you. While our core group is a trio, we are able to add vocals, or other instruments for your event at your request.

We feel privileged to serve the Pacific Northwest, and we love what we do. Let us make your event memorable!

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
