[JAZZ TAPESTRY] The oldest free outdoor jazz festival west of the Mississippi surges into its fourth decade with new management, admission fees for some events and a diverse lineup that includes films, workshops and panel discussions each day. On Thursday night, some of Portland’s finest players, including Devin Phillips, Marilyn Keller and Tim DuRoche, convene with the estimable composer pianist in Ezra Weiss’ New Band. Friday features Picante Latin Jazz, Norman Sylvester’s six-piece electric blues outfit and Roseland Hunters’ New Orleans-style marching band. Saturday mixes big bands (Stan Bock’s and Chuck Israels’) with the Dmitri Matheny Quartet’s jazz noir, Tom Grant Trio and more. Sunday is all over the map, including Sao Paulo’s Ventura Trio, New York’s Eri Yamamoto Trio, Jessie Marquez’s Cuban-influenced band, New West Guitar Group’s warm pop and finally, Portland’s own Blue Cranes, still flying high on their new album. Expect a massive jam-session finale involving a cast of dozens.
