Hey gang! Everyone in my immediate family except for me has recently relocated to beautiful Salem, Oregon, and I'll be spending a week there in late September. While I've spent a fair amount of time in Portland with family, I've never actually been to any music venues or gone to hear any of the local jazz players, and I'd like to do that since I'll be spending more time there. I know there are several prominent Oregon members and I'd love some tips on where to go, who to check out, if there are any cool residencies and/or sessions, that kind of thing. I'm very much looking forward to spending more time on the other side of the continent in my very favorite state (which Oregon has been since I was a kid) and away from the big, smelly, wonderful, frustrating, inspiring, maddening apple.
