What is the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble?

The PJCE is a 501c3 organization that operates the 12-member Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble, a group devoted to commissioning and performing original music by Oregon-based composers; and PJCE Records, an innovative record label that releases recordings by Oregon composers featuring their own groups.

We’re changing Portland’s jazz community by keeping these principles in mind:

Unique  We curate one-of-a-kind events that resonate with our diverse audience.

Collaborative — We connect artists and communities that would otherwise be separate.

Community-Oriented — We create new opportunities for musicians, listeners, and students to connect with jazz and with each other.
