Darrell Grant “M J New” Quartet
October 27 @ 7:30 pm
Thursday, October 27
Town Hall Forum
In-person* and livestream
The popular Portland pianist Darrell Grant has taken inspiration from the Modern Jazz Quartet, which for 40 years embodied jazz coolness. It deftly melded Bach fugues, American song, mid-century modernism, and the blues. Since 2013, MJ New has paid homage to MJQ, and not just through imitation. M J New includes Marcus Shelby (bass) and Mike Horsfall (vibes). Join us in-person for a panel on jazz and social justice with Darrell Grant and Marcus Shelby at 6:00pm.
