Kamasi Washington Crystal Ballroom Saturday, July 30th 2022

It was a hot and muggy night at the Crystal Ballroom. Kamasi was on fire and added to the heat all night. A solid two hour show from his big band. I really feel like they are messing very well. The jams all night where tight. I would like to call out the bassist in particular. That guy was amazing. Good performance from start to finish.

Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe Crystal Ballroom Friday, February 21st 2020

First in a double header weekend for PDX Jass Festival 2020. A rather empty room which was great. Allowed me to get close and still have room to dance. Such a good show that night. Jessica to end the set was amazing. Great music and great way to kick off the weekend. Almost overslept but I made it in time for Karl.
