2019 Montavilla Jazz Festival
Portland Metro Arts
9003 SE Stark St.
August 17, 2019
Now in its sixth year, the Montavilla Jazz Festival (MJF) is a two-day festival that showcases the very best in Portland jazz. While other festivals focus on international acts, legacy heavy hitters, or other mainstream jazz, MJF instead supports and strengthens local culture by highlighting the freshest, most exciting original compositions from Portland's eclectic and vibrant jazz scene. Taking place annually at nonprofit performing arts space Portland Metro Arts, MJF offers Portlanders a unique and accessible way to join Portland's finest musicians as they chart new frontiers in jazz.
Artists for the 2019 festival include Mel Brown, Ezra Weiss, Wayne Horvitz, Bobby Torres, George Colligan and more. Full lineup here: https://montavillajazzfest.com/artists/.
