Jazz Appreciation Month is drawing to a close, and here in the Portland, Oregon metro area the weather couldn’t be nicer.

JAM is a creation of the folks at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History. Be sure to visit the JAM web site and sign up for your free copy of the 2015 JAM poster featuring Billy Strayhorn!

While you’re there, you’ll want to check out all the other JAM resources the NMAH offers, including their list of “112 Ways To Celebrate Jazz” for those of us who live outside the Washington, DC area.

Get out and listen to some live jazz tonight! Click here to go to the Jazz Society of Oregon’s club calendar for live music in the Portland area.

JFASN will return on May 2nd. Until then, be jazzed about life! (Groan.) Heh.

Thanks for reading this.

If you represent a jazz artist with an album you feel would “fit in” here, whether a new release or what I call “pre-existing jazz,” please contact me at saturdaynightjazz@yahoo.com. I will provide you with an address you can submit a review copy.

Please note that acceptance by me of a copy of your album for consideration is no guarantee that it will be reviewed here.

Thank you!
