Portland jazz icon George Colligan is well-known as one of the country’s best pianists. He is also a master drummer and will lead his group Theoretical Planets (with soprano, sax, tenor sax and bass) in a concert of post-bop original music. Colligan, a New York-based pianist, organist, drummer, trumpeter, teacher and bandleader, is known as one of the most original and compelling jazz artists of his generation. He was on the faculty of the Juilliard School of Music and is currently an Assistant Professor at Portland State University. He was recently awarded an Artistic Focus grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council to develop his work with this new ensemble.
