An afternoon of jazz on the beautiful grounds of The Bloedel Reserve

Bloedel Reserve Willow TreeWhile we won’t be playing under this wonderful old Willow, it’s always nice to take the band outdoors, especially in the summer time, and the venue is as beautiful as the grounds of The Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island.

If you’re lucky enough to live on Bainbridge Island, join us on Sunday, July 17 at 4:30 PM and catch SRJO performing audience favorite from this year’s main stage concerts (on the mainland) without jumping a ferry. If you don’t live on the island, it’s a chance for a pleasant jazz getaway. Think of it as a mini-vacation, but check the ferry schedule (from Seattle || from Edmonds)!

No matter how you get there, the setting and the music will be outstanding. We’ll feature selections from “Jazz Goes to the Movies,” “Tribute to Benny Goodman”, “The Zen of Ten” and “Jazz of the Harlem Renaissance.” And, we’ll be featuring 17 of the most prominent jazz soloists and band leaders, including in-demand young players and seasoned veterans.

The Bloedel Preserve grounds open at 10:00 AM and The SRJO takes the stage at 4:30 PM – Sunday, July 17.

Seating for the show is at the Bloedel Mansion is on chairs under a tent, or optionally on the grass. Tickets can be purchased on line through Brown Paper Tickets, by phone (206-842-7631), or at the door.

  1. I attended the Bloedel concert today with my 11-year daughter, a beginning saxophone player. She loved the Jimmie Lunceford piece you played, and was humming it all night long, but we didn’t catch the name of it. She tried finding it online, but no luck. Can you point us in the right direction?
