Who Is Jonathan Poretz?

     Some say he was born with a microphone in his hand.  That would explain why Pacific Coast Jazz artist Jonathan Poretz is so comfortable performing his brand of great American jazz standards to audiences large and small. 

     He has written and starred in several highly acclaimed shows, including "Sex, Swagger & Swing: Sinatra and Darin in the Concert That Never Was," and "Sinatra, Dino, Darin and Davis -- When Vegas Was VEGAS!", which made its bi-coastal debut at Feinstein’s at the Nikko in San Francisco and Feinstein’s/54 Below in New York City.

     His latest jazz CD, At Last… Songs For Elena, is scheduled for release on the Pacific Coast Jazz label in September 2018.
