Other Info
Join us for a night of swing by one of Portland’s premier Jazz artist. Joined by Ramsey Embick (piano), Eric Gruber (bass) and this post-bop quartet will not disappoint!

The Devin Phillips Quartet brings a fresh sound to jazz music without losing the roots that make jazz such an original American art form. Phillips has surely added vitality, verve and spice to the Portland jazz scene since his arrival almost five years ago. Along with his shoot-from-the-hip, Sonny Rollins/Joe Henderson-like urgency, Phillips swings hard and plays it out like it matters. His most current recording, Wade in the Water, perfectly showcases his suave dynamics of musicality, showmanship and swagger — as rooted in the tradition of jazz’s cradle as it is caged in jazz modernity.

wade in the water

DEVIN PHILLIPS: WADE IN THE WATER is more than a jazz CD; it's also the story of a young jazz musician losing one home, but finding another in the Pacific Northwest.
