Paul Lichter, DIJ’s Director

Paul Lichter, DIJ's Director

Founder and club owner of  Portland’s famed jazz club Cafe No from 1988 to 1995, Paul is Portland’s own jazz impresario. The now legendary nightclub had a great jazz atmosphere and hosted well-known groups like the Boston-based jazz trio The Frindge and trumpeter Dave Ballou.

When the club closed, Paul started DIJ and eventually teamed up with the Conservatory to offer area jazz fans a chance to hear some of the best local, national and international jazz performers.

For more information, call Paul at (207) 828-1310, or the PCM’s Registrar for information about our Jazz Studies Program, which compliments the DIJ series.
