Jazz Musician Jim Pepper

OPB | May 31, 2007 8 p.m.

Beginning in the late 1960s, Jim Pepper became a pioneer of fusion jazz. His primary instrument was the tenor saxophone and his characteristic incisive, penetrating tone and soulful delivery was unique for its time. Of Kaw and Creek heritage, Pepper also combined elements of jazz with American Indian music. There have been three recent concerts of his work in Portland and one at the Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC.
