Join us at Fillmore Coffee to meet and greet Holland Andrews, composer for our newest commissioned work at the Improvisation Summit of Portland, hosted by the Creative Music Guild. We provide the pizza and discussion, you provide the company!!

Holland Andrews, who also performs as Like A Villain, joins a sextet of members of the Portland Jazz Composer’s Ensemble in a suite of new compositions inspired by her work in the mental health field. Deviate focuses on trauma—it’s an opportunity to feel the emotions brought on by the hardest times in our lives, and to find healing through music. Andrews’ work combines her voice, augmented by electronics, with trumpet, trombone, alto and tenor saxophone and bass and drums, all intrepreting text scores and traditionally notated music as well as graphic notation that will be projected on screens surrounding the ensemble.
