Other Info
Born and reared in New Orleans, the cradle of jazz, Devin Phillips’ intense affair with the saxophone began at the age of eight. At 14, he was accepted into the prestigious New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, whose alumni include Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Harry Connick, Jr. and Nicholas Payton. There, trained in music theory and multi-styles composition, he graduated in 2000 with top honors. Performing, touring and recording with top jazz artists, such as Wynton Marsalis, Eddie Palmieri, The Headhunters, the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, musician Lenny Kravitz, and Los Hombres Caliente (with whom he recorded two award-winning albums) soon followed. His reputation as a sax man with intricate and rhythmically innovative sounds made him a popular feature at jazz festivals: France’s Jazz de Vien Festival; Tokyo’s JVC Jazz Festival; Itanbul’s The Ruins; Spain’s Barcelona Jazz Festival; the Netherlands’ North Sea Jazz and the New Orleans Jazz Festival. Tonight he brings his all electric funk/jazz project– a dance floor filling band steeped in funk. It’s a great Saturday night band!
Farnell Newton Project makes their goodfoot debut tonight! A professor of Trumpet at PSU and a mainstay on the PDX jazz and funk scenes, Farnell is a local treasure. This band is made up of a host of the town’s finest instrumentalists and promises to lay the groove on thick for the horns to blow over. Don’t miss this—there’s gonna be a serious amount of talent on the stage this evening. $8

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.
