Quadraphonnes
A veritable force on the Portland music scene for over a decade, The Quadraphonnes is a saxophone quartet that unapologetically flaunts female power. They play a wide range of styles, display their impressive instrumental technique, and have no qualms about showcasing their feminine stage presence. On their own, they have two full-length albums, plus their newest collaboration with composer Andrew Durkin under PJCE Records, “Five Pointed Star”.

Known for putting on memorable performances in multiple genres, lately the group has been focused on the Saxophone Quartet (just the 4 founding members).  Members of the Quadraphonnes have been involved with the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble and PJCE Records since their inception, and have played pivotal roles in the direction of the organization.
For this year’s PDX Jazz Festival, they will be mixing it up by featuring two local pianists/composers with the Quartet for each set – Andrew Durkin and Kathleen Hollingsworth.

Andrew Durkin
Andrew Durkin is a composer and writer living in Portland, Oregon, and the author of Decomposition: A Music Manifesto, published by Pantheon in late 2014. Best known as the leader of the West Coast-based Industrial Jazz Group, Durkin, in Decomposition, poses tough questions about the genesis of musical creation, especially in the digital age. He explodes the age-old concept of composition as the work of individual genius, arguing instead that in both its authorship and reception by listeners, music is a fundamentally collaborative experience. How we listen, Durkin maintains, might have as much power to change music as music might have to change how we listen.

Kathleen Hollingsworth
Portland-based musician, Kathleen Hollingsworth has been performing and writing for most of her life. A childhood Kathleen steeped in singing led her to study piano and composition and is highly active in the northwest as a choral educator, adjudicator, director and leads the band, Mad Love. She is the recipient of a Downbeat Award and is a commissioned writer for the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble and the Jazz Educator Network. She is professional vocalist for OCP and Resonance Ensemble and is the Founder/Director of the Music Performance and Technology degree at Clackamas Community College in Portland, OR. She has worked with musical giants such as Danilo Perez, Fareed Haque, Phil Mattson, Martin Bejerano, Terence Blanchard, Rhiannon, Billy Martin and John Medeski.
