The inaugural PDX Jazz Festival ‘First Call’ showcase featuring acclaimed Portlandjazz musicians.
After 25 years of calling Portland home, pianist Darrell Grant offers a rare solo performance inspired by the founders of our city’s jazz scene.
Vocalist Rebecca Kilgore joins Darrell for the second set to remember the great Dave Frishberg.
Since the release of his debut album Black Art, one of the New York Times’s top ten jazz CD’s of 1994, Darrell Grant has built an international reputation as a pianist, composer, and educator who channels the power of music to make change. He has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe in venues ranging from Paris’s La Villa jazz club to the Havana Jazz Festival. Dedicated to themes of hope, community, and place, Grant’s compositions include his 2012 Step by Step: The Ruby Bridges Suite honoring the civil rights icon and The Territory which explores Oregon’s landscape and history. Since moving to Portland, Oregon he has been named Portland Jazz Hero by the Jazz Journalist Association, received a Northwest Regional Emmy, and received a MAP Fund grant and the Governor’s Arts Award. He is a Professor of Music at Portland State University where he directs the Artist as Citizen Initiative.
Both Darrell Grant and Rebecca Kilgore are recipients of the PDX JAZZ MASTERS Award.
