2020 Biamp PDX Jazz Festival presents Anson Wright Quartet
February 28 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm- $7
Often called a Renaissance man, jazz guitarist, composer, novelist, poet and educator Anson Wright has performed throughout the United States and abroad, including India. A graduate of Princeton, he left his graduate studies at Columbia to pursue both music and literary careers. In addition to his jazz albums, including the recently released Only Love, he has authored three books. His poetry was set to music by guitarist John Stowell in a 2008 spoken-word album, The Sky At Our Feet. Anson has taught at New York University, Pacific University and Portland Community College.
“Wright is an obvious disciple of the Jim Hall school… playing rooted in his urbane sensibility… a deep love for sound.” — All About Jazz
“Finely honed musical intelligence.” — The Oregonian
