Sitting with Bobby Torres, reminiscing about Sunday Supper Club in New York City, we both say, “why doesn’t Portland have one?” I’ve always wondered why my beloved Portland was lacking this critical piece of community culture. Sunday Supper Club is always my favorite event to attend when I visit a city, NYC, LA, Oakland... Here starts our journey with this new project incorporating Portland’s finest musicians, fabulous dancers/entertainers, and YOU, out for a fine evening in a classy joint with fantastic cocktails, select dinner menu and shared plates, dancing cheek to cheek, kicking up your heels, clapping your hands, being amazed, and looking amazing. Can’t wait to see you there!
Rebirthing the Cool - (Set time: 7:45 PM)
Rebirthing the Cool
Rebirthing the Cool features hot PDX jazz players lead by the one and only Doctor of Bebop David Watson.

We perform some of the charts of Gerry Mulligan, Miles Davis & Gil Evans and Dave Pell. Most of what we are playing is the West Coast movement in the period which was around the late 1940s and early 1950s.

This music of Miles Davis, Gil Evans, Gerry Mulligan, Stan Getz, Chet Baker, Shorty Rodgers, Shelly Mann and others helped in cooling down for a minute the Hot Jazz played all over the country in the early 1940s and late 30s.

This was a great time to live in, the music was changing and players were getting their pens out and putting great ideas down on paper, then forming groups to perform their works. The music we are playing is the results of those ideas, plus some ideas of Pete Petersen, Slide Hampton and my own.
