Someone asked earlier (sorry, I hit delete a bit too hastily) if there is
any information on Jazz Creek, Clackamas County, Oregon. Jazz Creek is a
small stream that flows into the Collowash River (just north of Dunno
Creek) in the SE corner of the county in a remote part of the Mount
Hood National Forest. There is no history of the name in McArthur's Oregon
Geographical Names (4th ed.). USGS has listed it since it published a
computer generated list of Oregon place names in 1983. Perhaps the name
was given by the Forest Service, but that is just a guess.

You can see it on a topographical map available through:
