MUSIC: “Ron Steen Jazz Jam”

From Willamette Week, 11/21/07:

PDX-born and -bred drummer Ron Steen has hosted the Produce Row Cafe Jazz Jam for the past 14 years or so, making him the bona fide Bob Barker of jam hosts in town. Steen’s name shows up in local music listings with the same regularity as the weather report, and that’s helped him remain one of the more consistent and important pulses of the Northwest jazz scene throughout its ebbs and flows. You’d have to dig pretty deep to find a local jazzman or -woman who hasn’t played with Steen, or even gotten his or her start at one of his jams. Don’t be bashful—show up with your own music box and join in on the tradition. Playing Monday, Nov. 26, at Produce Row Cafe. Steen also hosts jazz jams Sundays at Clyde’s Prime Rib.
