Watson: “We are doing some of the charts of Gerry Mulligan, Miles Davis & Gil Evans and Dave Pell. Most of what we are playing is the West Coast movement in the period which was around the late 1940’s and early 1950’s. This music of Miles Davis, Gil Evans, Gerry Mulligan, Stan Getz, Chet Baker, Shorty Rodgers, Shelly Mann and others helped in cooling down for a minute the Hot Jazz played all over the country in the early 1940’s and late 30’s. This was a great time to live in, the music was changing and players were getting their pens out and putting great ideas down on paper, then forming groups to perform their works. The music we are playing is the results of those ideas, plus some ideas of Pete Petersen, Slide Hampton and my own.

Dinner or casual bar menu available at 5pm, $18 minimum per person, food or beverage. Call for reservations 503.223.0070.

COVER CHARGES apply when Wilfs features live music in our bar area – Wednesday – Saturday, 7:30-11:30 pm. Quite simply, the cover charge is paid directly to the artists that you are enjoying each night at Wilfs. When you join us for drinks or dinner and plan on leaving before the music starts, we won’t ask for a cover charge. That does not mean you can come early and avoid paying the cover – we want to make sure our musicians are paid for their performance. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask your host or server.
