Jazz at the Oxford will celebrate its 10th season with some favorites from past years.
Series passes are on sale now for the long-running jazz (and more) concerts, which take place from October through March. Shows start at 7 p.m. Fridays and 5 and 8 p.m. on Saturdays, and take place in The Oxford Hotel’s ballroom.
Four of the artists return from previous years, including the season opener, vocalist Diane Schuur, Oct. 18 and 19; Brubeck Brothers Quartet (featuring the sons of jazz giant Dave Brubeck) Nov. 15 and 16; Western bebop group Cow Bop on Feb. 7 and 8; and Portland saxophonist (and Jazz at the Oxford’s longtime producer and curator) Patrick Lamb on March 13 and 14. Eldon “T” Jones & N Touch is the season’s newcomer, performing a tribute to Grover Washington Jr. on Jan. 10 and 11.
Local musician and educator Georges Bouhey will once again host workshops with the performing musicians at 11:15 a.m. Saturday of every performance weekend in the lower level of the hotel, a news release said.
