Darrell Grant, performer, composer and PSU professor, has built an international reputation as a stellar pianist and versatile musician. The Territory, a Chamber Music America commission, which Grant debuted last summer with Chamber Music Northwest, is a sweeping nine movement piece that blends improvisation and composition and draws inspiration on Oregon’s historical heritage as well as the incredible and diverse landscapes in the region. Grant is joined by award-winning vibraphonist Joe Locke and an all Portland support ensemble.
Darrell Grant’s “The Territory” is a part of the 2014 Portland Jazz Festival running February 20 through March 2.
Tickets available at Organizer website.
