Andrew Durkin is a familiar face to the PJCE audience as he had a release on PJCE Records called Breath of Fire in late 2016 (one of Downbeat Magazine’s Best of 2016), and has composed a few pieces for the PJCE’s flagship ensemble. On July 7th, he presents an evening of original music with three different groups: his long-awaited collaboration with the Quadraphonnes, Portland’s beloved sax quartet; Sunnyvale, an East-Coast-based group featuring excursions into indie pop, indie rock, and chamber pop; and a throwback to the Industrial Jazz Group, his celebrated LA-based big band.
