Other Info
Saxophonist Devin Phillips, a crescent city native who relocated to Portland in 2005 following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, carries the torch of New Orleans music with vigor and bright spirit. Black & Blue is a new project and collaboration between Phillips and Portland guitarist Chance Hayden, founded to perform a thorough repertoire of early New Orleans jazz. Their authentic sound is featured through a street corner instrumentation of sax, trumpet, trombone, acoustic guitar and upright bass. The tradition is ever present and the history is strongly reinstated with rhythm steeped in early swing, vibrant multi-horn polyphony and a deep connection to the blues.

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.
