Add to Calendar 2013-02-24 3:00 PM 2013-02-24 Portland Jazz Master Nancy King "Just Friends" Featuring Glen Moore and Steve Christofferson at Portland PDX Jazz Festival at Winningstad Theatre There are no closer musical kindred spirits than Moore and Christofferson to pay homage to the Pacific Northwest’s pre-eminent jazz singer. An improvising musician in the tradition of singers Sheila Jordan, Betty Carter and Ella Fitzgerald, King is a master of the bebop-scat singing style made famous by Louis Armstrong as well as the vocalese approach developed by singer and lyricist Jon Hendricks, in which jazz solos are set to lyrics. King spent her formative years in the Bay Area and performed with Miles Davis and Pharoah Sanders and in the 80’s and hit the festival circuit in Europe. Shortly thereafter, she broke through with a string of critically acclaimed albums for Justice Records and was nominated for a GRAMMY® in 2006.
