George Colligan is not only one of the great jazz pianists of his generation, but he has earned an international reputation as a multi-instrumentalist (drums, trumpet, organ, keyboards), composer, accompanist, teacher, and bandleader, as well as popular blogger (jazztruth.blogspot.com).

Winner of the 2015 DownBeat magazine Critics Poll (Keyboard), he has had a long association with living jazz legend Jack DeJohnette; recent touring took Colligan around the U.S. with “An Evening with Jack DeJohnette and Savion Glover.” He has also recently toured the U.S. and Canada as a leader with his trio featuring legends Buster Williams and Lenny White.

With over 130 albums to date as an accompanist, Colligan has worked with a long list of jazz greats, including John Scofield, Cassandra Wilson, Don Byron, Ravi Coltrane, and many others. His latest album, Theoretical Planets: Long Term Goals (PJCE Records, 2021) is his 34rd as a bandleader, and features PSU faculty and alumni.  

Colligan, a New York resident for 15 years, now resides in Portland, Oregon where he is an Associate Professor at Portland State University. He recently won a RACC Grant as well as the PSU College of The Arts Dean’s Council Award for Research, Scholarship and Creativity(2020).

Add to my Calendar 2021-02-25 18:00:00 2021-02-25 20:00:00 Sun and Celluloid: The Films of Mishima Yukio Join PSU's Center for Japanese Studies, with co-sponsors Department of World Languages and the Institute for Asian Studies, for our series, "Re-discovering the Work of Mishima Yukio, Fifty Years Out." REGISTER FOR WEBINAR Known primarily for his exceptional prose and dynamic personality Mishima Yukio continues to fascinate and intrigue audiences around the world. Within Mishima’s literary and pop culture success, however, was a personal fascination with cinema. This talk will analyze Mishima’s film-work not as a hobby or sideshow, but argue that it forms a core component in the totality of Mishima’s artistic development. From Yakuza pictures of the studio system, stunt casting in avante-garde film, or even a mock rehearsal of his own death, Mishima Yukio contributed to a brief, but potent component of Japanese cinema history. Patrick A. Terry is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the School of Film at Portland State University offering courses pertaining to East Asian and transnational cinemas. His PhD work at the University of Kansas addresses the intersection of art and commerce in Japan’s domestic film industry from the late 1960s to early 1990s with emphasis on the collapse of the studio system and rise of independent production companies. He is currently working on articles and a manuscript pertaining to the rise of Kadokawa Pictures and their company head, Kadokawa Haruki. This series has been made possible by a grant from the Toshiba International Foundation. Remote cjs@pdx.edu cjs@pdx.edu America/Los_Angeles public
