Devin Phillips and New Orleans Straight Ahead – New Orleans Jazz

Friday, October 2, at 7 p.m.

Loucks Auditorium

Tickets available starting Friday, September 25.

Born in New Orleans, Phillips graduated with top honors from the prestigious New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. He began playing sax in the local jazz scene and at festivals around the world. When Hurricane Katrina hit, Phillips was left with little more than his sax and his family.

Through a program offered by the Portland Jazz Festival, he resettled in Portland. Since then, Phillips has gone on to win awards from Jazz at Lincoln Center, the U.S. State Department, and The Oregon Arts Council. In May, he was inducted into the Jazz Society of Oregon’s Hall of Fame.
