Ben Darwish's First Portland concert in eight years / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #403

By TOM D'ANTONI // Portland native now Los Angelino returns for a concert of "High Energy Jazz" at Mississippi Studios on Tuesday, November 21.

Nearly ten years ago we got the news that Ben Darwish, composer, producer and keyboardist was moving from his Portland birthplace to Los Angeles.

He had been a part of a flowering of young Jazz musicians, coming out of college in the early two thousands.

The other part of the news was that he was going to be playing with a Pop band.

He is with me now at the Artichoke Café because he’s going to have his first Portland gig in eight years on Tuesday, November 21 at Misssissippi Studios for an evening of what he calls “High energy Jazz.”

Great news. We’ve got some story to fill in here.


Here's Ben's latest video:
