A diverse group of composer-performers continue Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble’s PJCE Online series with solo and duo performances on Sunday, January 31 at 7:00 pm PST. These Portland residents show the value of personal truths expressed through music is particularly potent as our nation reckons with the consequences of misinformation surrounding the insurrection at the Capitol and the ongoing pandemic.

Bassist Shao Way Wu; a duo with pianist Todd Marston and trumpeter Justin Copeland; and the saxophone/spoken word duo Thick in the Throat, Honey (John C. and Claudia F. Saleeby Savage) each perform their own compositions in a collection of pieces that offer an intimate view of the wildly creative and divergent styles that can be heard from Portland’s jazz composers all in one online event.

Trumpeter Justin Copeland said that his composition on the project celebrates “being the light by way of our sincere expression” during a dark time, and inspired the title of this project. Tickets range from $10 to free for PJCE sustainers, registration, and information is available at
