He has performed and recorded with a diverse group of world class acts, including Anat Cohen, Kurt Elling, Janis Siegel, Pink Martini, Valarie Day and Nu Shooz, the Portland Chamber Orchestra, Marv & Rindy Ross, Rebecca Kilgore, Marilyn Keller, and Darrell Grant, to name just a few. Horsfall is a tireless jazz educator, serving on the faculties of Willamette University, Mt. Hood Community College, Clark College, and Oregon Episcopal School.
Dan Balmer: From coffee house gigs at fifteen to chart-topping success with the Tom Grant Band in the 90s, world tours with two-time Grammy Award winner Diane Schuur and contemporary jam-bands, Dan Balmer brings fire and heart every time he plays the guitar. His playing spans nearly one hundred CDs including twelve as a leader from which his original works have appeared internationally in television, film and radio.
PDX Jazz ‘s mission is to evolve the art of jazz by engaging our community, celebrating live performance, and enhancing arts education.
The Hoxton is a series of open-house hotels inspired by the diversity and originality of the streets and scenes that surrounds us.
