Portland Book Festival – Cory Limuaco
presented by PDX Jazz
Saturday, November 5 | 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Via Jazz Society Oregon: Jazz musicians, at their best, love to dangle off a cliff, with only their wits and their fingertips holding themselves and whatever song they’re playing from complete disaster. Especially in a live setting, it’s a constant resetting of their creative boundaries, pushing up to and just beyond the edge every time.
Few players in Portland embody that concept better than drummer Cory Limuaco. He throws his full self into every performance, whether that’s working in the cosmic realm of Mae.Sun, blending neo-soul and fusion as a member of greaterkind, backing up superstar rapper Aminé, or deconstructing jazz and pop favorites with his own ensemble. He’s a daredevil with a fluid sense of time and a splashy attack who, as he put it on a recent Instagram post, plays “like it’s my last time, every time.”
Note: The PDX Jazz Stage is in a 21+ only area.
