Jazz Port Townsend: a great getaway

from The Seattle Times:

Jazz Port Townsend, which gets under way Thursday (July 23), has a different feel from other festivals, probably because its final weekend is the culmination of a weeklong workshop.

That means the crowd in Port Townsend and out at Fort Worden is full of aspiring young musicians, and their parents, plus other fans who are really listening to the music.

Fold that attentiveness into three nights of rolling performances in intimate venues, concerts in a grand pavilion with views out its doors of evergreen trees and sky, a pleasantly salty sea breeze and PT’s gingerbread Victorian B&Bs, and you have the elements of a great jazz getaway.

If you can’t make the ferry crossing next weekend, note that [Steve] Wilson is offering Seattleites a sneak preview (with a homegrown quintet including pianist Marc Seales and drummer Matt Jorgensen) Friday and Saturday, July 17-18, at Tula’s (206-443-4221 or tulas.com).
