More Devotedly Volume I event @ The 1905
October 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
7:00 pm and 8:30 pm sets
Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble’s Executive Director Douglas Detrick steps out of the background to lead his own band in two sets of music. More Devotedly is both the name of the band and of the podcast hosted by Detrick that shares the stories of artists whose work addresses the most urgent issues in our democracy.
Like a party with Pete Seeger, Duke Ellington, Ornette Coleman, and Studs Terkel all in attendance, More Devotedly is a cultural and political discussion set to music, featuring songs, snippets of interviews from the podcast, and a hybrid of old-time folk music, jazz, and electronic music played by Detrick on banjo, trumpet and voice; Joe Kye on violin, electronics and voice; Mike Gamble on guitar, and Christopher Johnedis on drums.
