Portland Jazz Composers "Maxwell to Vanport" @ The Tower Theater

The Tower Theater invites you to “Maxville to Vanport”.  This unique and highly entertaining event features the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble.  This is a multimedia concert of songs and short films that tell the story of two historic blue collar Oregon towns.  The joyful score is a mix of jazz, blues, R&B, and gospel-inspired music with music by Ezra Weiss, text by Renee Mitchell, video by Kalimah Abioto, and historical consultation by Gwendolyn Trice of Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center created in a community-guided process in 2018, this project celebrates a little-known part of Oregon’s history.
