Rita Rega on this year's Cathedral Park Jazz Festival / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #392

By TOM D'ANTONI // Once again it's time for the free Cathedral Park Jazz Festival under that beautiful bridge in St. Johns. Jazz Society of Oregon's Rita Rega tells us all about everyone who is playing this year.

First of all, don’t miss the next Coffeeshop Conversation. It’s with Skip VonKuske Oregon’s beloved cellist who will be moving to Massachusetts in a couple of weeks.

But this weekend is the Cathedral Park Jazz Festival, under that magnificent bridge in St. Johns.

It’s the forty-third annual and it’s presented by the Jazz Society of Oregon. From the Jazz Society is Rita Rega who has been in on the planning and execution.

And it's free!

I love that festival. There are hardly any spots in Portland that are as beautiful and although the festival has had it’s ups and downs over the years. It sure has been extremely up in the past few years.

Meet Rita Rega.
