BWW Review: ASTORIA Brings the Founding of Oregon's Oldest City Vividly to Life, at Portland Center Stage
by Krista Garver - Jan 27, 2017

I read Peter Stark's Astoria last year on the suggestion of Portland Center Stage Artistic Director Chris Coleman. It's the history of the John Jacob Astor-funded expedition to establish a fur trading post on the Pacific. He sent one party by land and another by sea to Astoria, Oregon, which became the first American settlement in the Pacific Northwest. The whole time I was reading, all I could think was, 'How did they make it?' (more...)

Baryshnikov Arts Center & Jazz Foundation of America co-Present Stanley Jordan
by BWW News Desk - Feb 8, 2017

The Baryshnikov Arts Center (BAC) and Jazz Foundation of America will co-present Stanley Jordan on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 8pm at BAC's Jerome Robbins Theater. Among the most gifted guitarists of his generation, Jordan is master of the two-handed tapping technique, using the neck of the guitar like a keyboard rather than strumming or picking. Applying this astonishing technique, or "touch style" in another setting, Jordan also performs on both guitar and piano at the same time, playing chords and melodies with his hands on separate instruments and uniquely melding the two sounds into one. More than a technical phenomenon, Jordan conveys an astounding depth of musical expression through a multi-faceted solo repertoire, ranging from bold reinventions of classical masterpieces to improvisational contemporary works. At BAC, Jordan will be joined for several songs by his daughter, New York City-based singer/songwriter Julia Jordan. (more...)

Cliff Somers Releases IS HE OR ISN'T HE?
by BWW News Desk - Dec 6, 2016

Cliff Somers was born in Maine but claims Florida as his home state. He lives in Tampa with his lovely and smart wife, Jennie. He retired from the practice of trial law and needed something else to occupy his time. Having been an English major in undergraduate school, writing seemed to be a no-brainer.
