    Khruangbin (Thai for airplane, or literally "engine fly") are a jet-setting trio from Texas whose smooth, groove-heavy music is heavily inspired by Thai rock and funk from the 1960s and '70s, as well as a multitude of other influences ranging from surf rock to dub to Iranian pop. Active since the early 2010s, the group's indefinable yet singular and highly accessible sound has attracted a remarkably wide audience. Following the release of their second album, 2018's Con Todo el Mundo, Khruangbin were regularly playing sold-out concerts around the globe and their music had become a fixture of various streaming platforms. While the band's material was primarily instrumental throughout the 2010s, they began incorporating more vocals into their music in 2020. A collaborative EP with Leon Bridges preceded Mordechai, their song-driven third full-length.

    A Djembist, Composer, Producer and Folklorist of the highest caliber, Braimah has an almost insatiable knack to draw entire audiences into his groove, zigzagging through Africa on a breathtaking rhythmic roller coaster. His sound is the new voice of Djembe Music around the world.

    Braimah comes from a long lineage of drummers including his mother, Ann Morris, a respected jazz drummer and his father, Oscar Sulley Braimah, a world-renowned composer and master drummer. Braimah has been a performer, teacher and preserver of African culture for over 30 years and continues to peruse new musical crossings every day. He also leads his own band, Weedie Braimah & The Hands of Time, where he mounts the Djembe as the frontage presenting music of the diaspora. His band has appeared in Europe, Cuba, Dubai and the United States to name a few. Braimah’s debut album was also featured in Times Magazine as one of the top 10 albums of 2021.

    French-Caribbean singer, bassist and producer Adi Oasis (FKA Adeline) spent most of the pandemic soothing our frazzled nerves with a constant stream of soulful, heartwarming songs, including 2 EPs, collaborations with Masego, Blue Lab Beats, Pastel, Kamauu, Yakul, Jean Tonique and more. Her unique blend of funk, R&B and soul got us through the long hard months as we watched our world go up in flames, both literally and figuratively.

    With the hustle and shine (and cautious optimism) of a classic NYC immigrant, Adi’s most recent EP, Adi Oasis, included a premiere of “Whisper My Name” on A COLORS SHOW. Praised by Rolling Stone, Bass Player, Blackbook and more, the 7-song collection features a handful of previously shared, fan-favorite singles and three enthralling new tracks, including the brand new single, “Stages” ft. KAMAUU.

    Adi Oasis also produces under the moniker Night Shade with her partner  Morgan Wiley (Midnight Magic, Jessica 6). Their first cut for another artist was the sun-drenched summer jam “Mango” for Atlantic Records artist Kamauu, which also features Adeline on vocals and  bass.

    Adi Oasis has toured globally, appearing with Anderson .Paak, JUNGLE, Lee Fields, Chromeo, Big Freeda, and more, and has performed at Central Park Summerstage, Afropunk, Funk on the Rocks (Red Rocks) and Winter Jazz Fest.

    With her explosive mix of hip hop, cumbia, dancehall and reggae, the Cuban singer, flautist and percussionist Yaite Ramos Rodriguez, aka La Dame Blanche delivers a powerful and compelling sound which summons the spirits.

    The smoke of an inaugural cigar prior to setting foot on set, a glass of rum left backstage, necklaces, white flowers, a pristine turban: for her appearances on stage, la Dame Blanche feeds the energy of the spirits of Santeria, her Afro-Cuban religion.

  • PDX Jazz Presents: Argyle Winery Summer Concert Series - Scott Law Quartet

    Argyle Winery, 691 OR-99W, Dundee, OR 97115, USA

    Join Argyle Winery at their Tasting House in Dundee and enjoy the tunes of summer! Argyle has been a supporter of the Portland Jazz Festival for several years, and truly appreciates the creative, powerful storytelling and history this art form contributes to our lives. They've have partnered with PDX Jazz, the producers of the Portland Jazz Festival, to curate an exciting, energetic fun-filled line-up for summer 2022. Introduced last year, Argyle is proud to continue the summer concert series this year—as they celebrate our 35th year of making wine here in the Willamette Valley.

    The second artist in the Summer Music Series is the Scott Law Quartet. Multifaceted artist Scott Law is an accomplished guitar master, singer-songwriter and recording artist operating at the very highest level of his craft. Hailed as an “esteemed flat-picker” by Acoustic Guitar, Law is equally reverent and inventive on steel strings whether in a lead or supporting role. Law’s versatility on the guitar ranges from the flat-picking school of Doc Watson to the hardcore country pickings of Clarence White, Albert Lee and Don Rich, to the electric blues of Mike Bloomfield, while also giving a feel and fluidity reminiscent of Jerry Garcia.

    Tickets: All shows are $60, which includes show admission and two glasses of wine. Food from Koi Fusion will be available for purchase. Doors open at 6PM. Shows begin at 7PM.

    Joel Frahm is known to all jazz-lovers as one of the modern icons of the tenor saxophone. An unsurpassed emotional projection and technical ability always characterize his playing which draws the breadth the American musical tradition including jazz, funk, rock and blues. His work as a leader and his collaboration with the leading players of his generation including Brad Mehldau, Matt Wilson, Jane Monheit and Ari Hoenig have established him as among the most important and exciting players of our time. The New York Times says, "Joel has established an identity ... as a post-bop saxophonist with a deft and assertive command" and the Ottawa Citizen sums it up well, "Joel Frahm is widely known in the jazz world for his effusive creativity, rollicking positive spirit, technical fluency and versatility." Brad Mehldau, Joel’s childhood friend and longtime collaborator, digs a little deeper, "When I think of Joel, I think of his sound on the tenor, big and generous, very warm and comfortable. One thing I always hear in Joel’s playing is an unapologetic emotional outpouring."
