Hollywood Theatre

Phil Cohran has sidestepped conventional jazz (and funk) almost from day one, most notably during his time as part of Sun Ra's Arkestra in the early '60s. Known mostly as a trumpeter, Cohran has also dabbled with other instruments, including the zither. His contributions with that instrument can be heard all over Sun Ra's 1965 LP Angels and Demons at Play. It was his brief time in the Arkestra that pushed him to become a talented composer and producer in his own right as bandleader of the Artistic Heritage Ensemble. Part of Mississippi Records' Music and Film Series, tonight's presentation will include a slideshow and lecture, which will be followed by a performance from Cohran on various instruments. The cosmos aligns in Portland tonight. MARK LORE
