Enjoy an evening of live Jazz with singer/songwriter, Marti Mendenhall. Come listen as Marti performs her unique blend of traditional jazz standards, modern jazz covers, and her own brand of jazz – redefined in the classic Ivories tradition! This fabulous evening will feature the premiere of “Words Last,” written by Marti in honor of a great Arts supporter, the late Marta Mellinger. Marti's unique writing and performing style captures the nuances of jazz, and her music appeals to Jazz and Pop lovers alike. She genuinely connects with the audience and brings them with her, tapping their feet and singing along right through every fabulous performance. Remarkable lyrics and soaring scat solo’s remind us that the core of this singer is made of pure Jazz. Marti is joined by some of Portland's most dynamic musicians: Dustin Hunley on keys, Todd Strait on drums, Eric Gruber on Bass, and Bethany Small and Erin Ibara on back-up vocals.
