In this episode, we pay tribute to Portland's rich jazz-funk tradition - arguably the foundation for the city's later boogie-funk output. Artists featured include Thara Memory, Rich Halley, Mel Brown, Jim Pepper, Tom Grant & more. Selections loosely revolve around jazz-funk but not without a few avant and post-bop detours.
