Theoretical Planets CD Release and George Colligan Trio

A jazz musician with an international reputation who has been working with names like Cassandra Wilson and Jack DeJohnette, PSU professor George Colligan is presenting two of his bands for one night of music in Portland.

Theoretical Planets, a group in which Colligan plays drums, has released a CD on the Origin label entitled " Risky Notion." The CD has gotten rave reviews, including 4 stars in Downbeat Magazine. The group features Joe Manis and Nicole Glover on saxophones, and Jon Lakey on bass. It's been described as one of Portland's most exciting jazz groups.

Also on the bill for the evening will be Colligan performing on his main instrument, the piano. His regular Portland trio includes the great Chris Higgins on bass and the great Chris Brown on drums. Colligan was described by New York Times jazz critic Nate Chinen as "A pianist of deep harmonic and rhythmic assurance…"

The performance will be held at Michelle's Pianos on April 11th from 8-11.
