Oregon Jazz Band
The Oregon Jazz Band will play a concert in memory of its longtime leader, Bill Borcher, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Old City Hall, 375 Central Ave., Coos Bay.
Borcher, who died April 6, was a key figure in West Coast traditional jazz circles. Many of the musicians he worked with are expected to sit in during the jam session. The event also will feature an open-mike session between music sets so Borcher's friends can share their memories.
There will be no admission charge, but contributions will be taken for the Bill Borcher Music Scholarship Fund.

Thompson, who was the headliner at last weekend's Pleasant Hill Jazz Festival, has performed at Holland's North Seas Jazz Festival and France's Juan Les Pins Festival du Jazz. She has recorded five CDs.
For this engagement, Group Therapy will consist of Tim Clarke on trumpet and flugelhorn, Bob Boyers on piano, Steve Maricle on bass and Jim Douglas on drums.
