PJCE Records Presents: George Colligan's Other Barry
830 N Shaver St.
Feb. 3, 2019, 6 p.m.
PJCE Records, a label that grew out of the non-profit Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble, has been at the center of curating the Portland sound since 2013. And The 1905, now in its third year, is possibly Portland’s most important jazz venue. Combining forces, PJCE Records and the 1905 bring PDX the best originally composed jazz on the first Sunday of every month.
Downbeat poll-winning keyboardist George Colligan leads a fusion power trio with two of his former students that are leading the way for new jazz in Portland. The music is intense, original, challenging, and exciting. Electric jazz does not get much more high-flying than it does when this group is on. And they are always on.
