Album Notes
"Eponymous," the debut record by the Blake Lyman Quintet, is an elegant collection of melodic modern jazz. Blake is an underappreciated tenor saxophone player and composer originally from northern California, and he has assembled an all star line up of Portland talent to breathe life into this collection of forward thinking modern jazz compositions. Noah Bernstein, also on saxophone, has toured the world with experimental indie-pop group TuneYards and currently plays in 90's throwback R & B group Shy Girls as well as avant-garde jazz ensemble Get Smashing Love Power. Keyboard player Andrew Oliver is best known for his work with the Kora Band, a West African and Jazz fusion group, as well as the award winning Canadian-American collective Tunnel Six. On "Eponymous," the Blake Lyman Quintet create a lush, accessible soundscape that is both sophisticated and extremely lyrical.


PJCE Records is a grassroots recording label documenting the wide variety of original music being created by Portland area jazz composers and improvisers. We aim to provide an outlet to encourage the dissemination of new music in the area as well as fostering community within the jazz and improvised music scene in Portland. We release one album per month digitally and/or in limited CD pressings. The albums are recorded live in one session per album, reflecting a common practice from jazz history and encouraging a rapid turnaround to document and enhance the thriving community of jazz and improvising musicians in the Portland area. The label is operated by the Portland Jazz Composers’ Ensemble and all rights to the music remain with the individual artists.
