By TOM D'ANTONI //

She was featured on the cover of the March issue of OMN the magazine. First published online February 26, 2015.

It's very difficult to pick a couple of Coffeeshop Conversations as "Best" after a year of wonderful conversations with interesting, talented folks. This one stands out, period."

Thursday means a new Coffeeshop Conversation from the Cupping Room at World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan.

Today’s CC is with Rebecca Sanborn is a keyboardist and vocalist. She is a member of Portland’s beloved Indie/Jazz/Punk/Intellectual (I could go on a naming spree) band the Blue Cranes. She is also a member of Swansea, a trio which she started as a duo with her husband, percussionist Ji Tanzer, also the drummer in the Cranes.

I had an absolutely rivetingly delightful hour talk we had which was wide-ranging: from her childhood, to the joys of being married to Tanzer and having him play in both bands (no irony, she means it), to Millennial behavior and a lot of other things.
