David Friesen has been presenting Christmas concerts for the past 39 years here in Portland. They started with icon pianist/singer Jeannie Hoffman from San Francisco (originally from Portland)...it was her idea to start them here in Portland in 1975. She had come up from S.F.with drummer Allan Pimental to do some gigs and Dave was recommended by the club owner (Ray Helm...owner of the Helm on N.E. Broadway) to be her bassist. Their musical connection was immediate and the Christmas concerts became an instant success and continued through the years until her untimely death 5 years ago.
David Friesen has been continuing on with the Christmas concerts ever since. This year he's reharmonized several of the traditional Christmas songs and will be presenting them in Concert with an all star group at Ivories on Friday December 13th at 8pm. Jay Thomas (from Seattle) will be joining the group this year. He is one of the truly great trumpet players in the world today...he also plays tenor, alto, flute and soprano. He was previously voted as number one in the Down Beat Jazz Poll.
