[21st CENTURY JAZZ] With both of Portland's long-running summer jazz festivals downsized from earlier glory days, does the city really need another one? Absolutely—especially one built around the forward-looking, 21st century sounds of the genre-defying young musicians from the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble, which has revitalized the city's jazz scene in recent years. Along with younger jazzers like Blue Cranes, Ryan Meagher, Tim Willcox, Optic Nerve Trio (a spinoff of Ocular Concern) and others, this summer snapshot of the state of Portland jazz includes some top vets, including David Friesen's Circle 3, Alan Jones, Rich Halley 4, PSU profs and piano masters Darrell Grant and George Colligan and more.
