Hudson

Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield, Larry Grenadier & John Medeski

October 23 | 7:30 pm
Newmark Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway
Portland, OR 97205 United States

Note: Presented by Portland’5 Centers for the Arts. Not a PDX Jazz production. Drummer Jack DeJohnette, guitarist John Scofield, bassist Larry Grenadier and keyboardist John Medeski all live in the Hudson River Valley, which stretches south from the New York state capital of Albany to the tip of Manhattan. The region’s towns are nestled amid the forests of the Catskill Mountains, with artists in residence because New York City is near, by train or car. Proximity may make it easy for these four to rehearse—but if so, look out!—because DeJohnette, in his prime lays fierce rhythms down. Tested as DeJohnette was in the bands of Miles Davis, Scofield revels in melodic tension and bluesy release. Medeski, even without his longstanding trio partners Billy Martin and…

Ballaké Sissoko & Vincent Ségal

w/ special guest The Portland Kora Project

October 24 | 7:30 pm
The Old Church, 1422 SW 11th Ave.
Portland, OR 97201 United States

A joint presentation with Beloved Festival. When Ballaké Sissoko and Vincent Ségal released their first collaborative album, Chamber Music, they caught the music world by surprise. Everything about this duo and the elegantly soulful music they made together was unexpected: Sissoko being the Malian master of the traditional kora harp, and Ségal being the French cellist with the unlikely background in trip-hop. The album appeared on numerous best-of lists in both Europe (in 2009) and North America (in 2011). Now, these two sonic voyagers have returned with Musique de Nuit (“Night Music”) – an album that may be even more spellbinding than its predecessor. After years of touring together Sissoko and Ségal have created their own hybrid tradition, one that draws on the ancient well…

Blues People: Negro Music in White America

Free Lecture led by Reed College Professor Pancho Savery

October 25 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Literary Arts, 925 SW Washington Street
Portland, OR United States

PDX Jazz is proud to present Discover Jazz – an adult education series with Reed College Professor and PDX Jazz Board Member Pancho Savery. Mr. Savery will host the evening’s event that includes lecture and discussion. In this presentation, Savery will discuss Amiri Baraka’s writings. In 1963, Amiri Baraka, still then LeRoi Jones, published Blues People: Negro Music in White America. Nearly fifty-five years later, it is time for a reexamination of this seminal text. Do his ideas on the role and function of black music still carry weight? Have the criticisms of the text, notably those of Ralph Ellison, stood the test of time? Savery will attempt to answer these questions and more! This event is free to the public on a first-come, first-served seating…

Winningstad Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway

Since his formidable emergence on the music scene in the late 90s, jazz pianist Jason Moran has proven more than his brilliance as a performer. The Blue Note Records recording artist has established himself as a risk-taker and innovator of new directions for jazz as a whole. In almost every category that matters – improvisation, composition, group concept, repertoire, technique and experimentation – Moran, and his group The Bandwagon, have challenged the status quo, and earned the reputation as “the future of jazz.” Moran’s debut recording as a leader, Soundtrack to Human Motion, was released in 1999 to great critical praise.
