PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — This summer has been all about the return of in-person music festivals, and another one makes a comeback Friday.

The Vanport Jazz Festival kicks off at the Colwood Golf Course in Northeast Portland. The two-day event brings together big names in jazz and R&B, including some local talent.

KOIN 6’s Ken Boddie will be making an appearance at the festival as emcee. But first, founder and organizer James Taylor joined AM Extra with everything you need to know about the festival.
