Michalangela, whose full name is Michal Angela Wilson, is a highly appealing and increasingly significant singer based in Portland, Oregon. Her style is based in jazz although she is also stretching out towards soul music. Her debut recording, Portland Rain, was a major step forward in her career.

Since recording Portland Rain, Michalangela has evolved, she has become a more confident performer and a more daring improviser, and she has pexpanded into soul music while keeping her foundation in jazz. Singing with saxophonist Devin Phillips, Tyrone Hendrix (who is Stevie Wonder’s drummer), trumpeter Farnell Newton and other major local players, Michalangela not only performs jazz and soul but r&b and gospel, inspired by Erykah Badu and Billie Holiday. She is in the early stages of recording her next CD, a project that will find her concentrating on recording her own originals.

Devin phillips is constantly pushing the borders of what is considered modern jazz today. Phillips carries a torch passed to him by a long lineage of New Orleans Masters. Refusing to play music over the head of his audience, Devin's approach some how manages to bring together elements of American culture old and new. Avid jazz fans will enjoy the tradition that is so prevalent in his sound, while people new to his music always find it accessible and engaging. Phillips ability to convey emotion through his music guarantees a great performance at one of Portland's finest music venues.

Voted an Open Table Diners’ Choice winner in early 2012, Wilfs Restaurant is located in the 1898 renovated Union Station, just minutes from the Pearl District and downtown Portland. The high copper-colored ceilings, bronze chandeliers, and our cozy red wingback chairs provide guests with an intimate escape from the world. “Mad Men” atmosphere best describes the lounge and it’s modern take on classic cocktails. Some of the best jazz music in the city is performed up-close and personal Wednesday through Saturday evenings, adding to your great experience. Reservations can be made via OpenTable, or you can call the restaurant at 503.223.0070.

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.
