Jazz Town

"Jazz Town" examines the vibrant, post-World War II eruption of music and nightlife in North and Northeast Portland. A colorful and significant chapter in the city's cultural narrative, this short-lived period is largely unknown to many Oregonians.

Produced by Eric Cain and edited by Bruce Barrow.
