“Where words fail, music speaks.” Hans Christian Anderson

Portland, Oregon – Oh My Goodness!

Welcome! Glad you could make it to Lynnross.com. Please send me a note so we can keep in touch. I will write you back right away: Jazzylynnross@Hotmail.com

The writing is on the wall. Keep Portland Weird. Out of curiosity more than anything, I looked the word weird up at Merriam-Webster. My favorite definition says, “of strange or extraordinary character.” Extraordinary indeed! Music (talented musicians, singers and dancers a plenty), Food (gourmet, farmer’s markets, local and fresh, amazing restaurants), Drink (wines, particularly Pinot Noir and countless delicious craft beers), Scenery (vibrant neighborhoods, gardens, gorgeous landscapes and waterfalls), Creative Arts (numerous weekend fairs and festivals, galleries,  street art including murals and sculptures). Beautiful people from all walks of life with a strong sense of community. Oh my goodness!

I truly could go on and on and on about what makes Portland so weird. I love exploring, and I have lived here for a few years, just a little south west of Portland – there’s so much to see an do.  I love it here!

Musically I have had the great pleasure and opportunity to sing at some wonderful private parties. Being crazy for jazz music, early on I went to some fabulous Jazz Jams and got to sit in with some fine musicians. The Jazz Jams are at Clyde’s Prime Rib Restaurant in Portland with Ron Steen. There’s another Jazz Jam with Tom Grant at Tommy O’s Pacific Rim Bistro in Vancouver, WA. There’s also a Jazz Jam in Hillsboro with Laura Cunard at Coyote’s Bar and Grill.

I hope you will come back and visit me here again. Or better still,…. hope to see you soon while I’m singing and dancing. Keep Portland Weird!
