BendBroadband’s Jazz at the Oxford: Lee Ritenour


  • The Oxford Hotel 10 Northwest Minnesota Avenue Bend, OR, 97701 United States (map)

BendBroadband’s enormously popular “Jazz at the Oxford” series returns for its 9th year.  This event brings talented musicians to Bend’s first and only luxury boutique hotel – The Oxford, right in the heart of downtown Bend.  The first event in this series will feature Lee Ritenour with three performances October 19-20. “Lee Ritenour’s diverse music became the foundation of over 3,000 sessions as a young guitarist with a broad spectrum of artists including Pink Floyd, Steely Dan, B.B. King, Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and Simon & Garfunkel. From one of his first sessions at 16 with the Mamas and the Papas to accompanying Lena Horne and Tony Bennett at 18, Lee’s 40 year storied career is highlighted by a Grammy Award win for his 1986 collaboration, Harlequin, with Dave Grusin, 17 Grammy nominations, numerous #1 spots on guitar polls and the prestigious “Alumnus of the Year” award from USC.”
