Andy Middleton Quartet
Teutonic Wine Company
3303 SE 20th Ave. Portland, OR 97202
Live Jazz and Dinner
Andy Middleton is one of the top-tier saxaphonists living in Europe today. Born in Harrisburg, PA, Andy received his masters degree in composition at the University of Miami. After nearly 20 years in the New York jazz scene, he relocated to Vienna, Austria in 2006, where he is Professor of Jazz Composition, Jazz Theory and Jazz Saxophone at the University for Music and Art of the City of Vienna.
Imaginative and adventurous virtuosity spans an incredibly wide breadth of expression — from fierce power to tender warmth, lyrical yet rhythmically driving, masterful and inspired. His compositions, harmonically modern and melodic yet clearly rooted in the jazz tradition, provide the perfect setting.
Andy will be leading this quartet featuring Jon Lakey on bass, Alan Jones on drums and Randy Portler on piano. Music starts at 7:30.
Join us for dinner! Chef Alex Bourgidu creates a new small plate dinner every week.
