You. the oxford. jazz. it's all coming together.

Kicking off this winter’s Jazz at the Oxford series, Bend will be treated to performances from renowned blues singer/songwriter/harmonica player Curtis Salgado and rootsy jazz crooner LaRhonda Steele.

Salgado was the inspiration for John Belushi’s The Blues Brothers; you can’t get much more legendary than that. Belushi and Salgado even palled around on stage a time or two, performing Salgado’s revivalist blues and soul. Salgado has been praised as one of the most passionately soulful singers of his day and his vocal and harmonica skills are always backed by a smoking hot band of top-notch musicians. In 2010, he was awarded the Blues Foundations Soul Blues Male Artist of the Year award.


Despite his 2006 liver transplant, he continues to perform regularly, and while he may not be participating in the crazy Belushi-style parties of his youth, he still retains all of the punch in his performances.

 

Steele packs an emotional punch of her own with a gospel-inspired voice that will blow audiences away. Her combination of R&B, soul, jazz and gospel make her a musical hybrid, and she regularly shares the stage with Portland’s finest blues musicians.
