Portland Groove Collective / Bio

Portland Groove Collective

All Original Jazz Rock, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban-based rhythm music that derives its musicianship from across the United States to coalesce in the Pacific Northwest.

The Portland Groove Collective is a rhythmic jazz quintet from Portland, Oregon. Coming together at a series of local jazz jam sessions, the group is comprised of musicians with dynamic musical experience and training. With an emphasis on groove-oriented music, The P.G.C brings an exciting interpretation to jazz standards as well as producing an array of original music. Influences range from the relaxed and clear melodies of Antonio Carlos Jobim, to the experimentation and latin funk of Weather Report to the precise arrangements and chordal labyrinths of Steely Dan. This is the Portland Groove Collective's debut album and is entirely original music. Enjoy!
