Debbie Poryes has been on the faculty of the Berkeley Jazzschool since 2000 teaching jazz piano and functional harmony.

Les French, WMEB-Orono, ME
Debbie Poryes is a fresh voice in jazz, playing piano in a clean, unadorned style without pretention and with modern arrangements. The music pays homage to jazz' past while having a pop sensibility, breathing fresh air into these well-traveled standards.
