Add to Calendar 2013-02-24 7:00 PM 2013-02-24 Acs: Geri Allen, Terri Lyne Carrington, Esperanza Spalding at Portland PDX Jazz Festival at Newmark Theatre These three multi-faceted artists recently collaborated on TLC's Mosaic Project, an all-star female cast ensemble that scored a GRAMMY® Award-winning album. ACS is a spirited collective on the rise making their West coast debut appearance. Allen commented, “There is joy in every note... music becomes a wonderful evolutionary vehicle each time we are together.” States Carrington, “We are trying to be free within a certain set of given boundaries - standard repertoire with some head arrangements - a few twists and turns - but not too arranged, to have freedom to create arrangements on the spot. We’re exploring songs with more standard harmonic motion, and while respecting the original intent of the songs, we’ll keep digging into the compositional layers to see what we can uncover." Spalding summed it up by stating, "Different people playing standards is like different artists painting the same fruit bowl. The beauty about it is in how everyone can interpret them differently."
