The Jim Beatty Jazz Band plays the New Orleans style – plus more! He has expanded his repertoire by playing, along with the jazz standards, popular hits, light classics, marches, ragtime, swing, spiritual hymns and the blues! Jim Beatty is a versatile performer and tailors his music to fit the occasion. So whether he is performing for a private party, reception, concert or festival, his audiences always want more.
Recently The Jim Beatty Jazz Band performed at the Portland Lindy Exchange Swing Festival. After playing the last tune of the night, the band was cheered on to a double encore performance. They would have stayed longer but they had to catch a flight to Palm Springs to play at their Jazz Festival… and I’m not kidding! Jim travels all over with his band and we are grateful to have them based out of Portland. Below are some sample tracks that were recorded live at the Portland Lindy Exchange Swing Festival:
