Water Spirit

Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble (PJCE) honors the music and creative process of Oregon-born saxophonist Jim Pepper (Kaw/Creek) with a concert of new music. Going far beyond Pepper’s chart-topping hit “Witchi Tai To,” PJCE showcases how Native artists have been and are a vital part of Portland’s creative music scene in new Pepper-inspired compositions by Gordon Lee and Clay Giberson and arrangements by Ezra Weiss and Stephanie Kitson of songs by guest hip hop artist 2 8 Tha Native. Hip hop artist Kunu will be a special guest.
