Last weekend, I saw jazz saxophonist Bobby Watson perform with a backing band of Portlanders (including drummer Mel Brown) at The Oxford Hotel in downtown Bend. Watson’s visit was the next-to-last installment of the hotel’s 2012 Jazz at the Oxford series. (The Michael Allen Harrison Superband will wrap the series in April. Details here.)
Anyway, the show was sublime and I’ll have a full review in Friday’s GO! Magazine in The Bulletin. In the meantime, check out some fine photos of the night taken by Bulletin photographer Ryan Brennecke.
