Sistas’ Place, 456 Nostrand Avenue, at the corner of Jefferson Avenue, where Jazz: A Music of the Spirit Lives and Culture is our Weapon, continues its 22nd season with the music of Resistance, Resilience and Resurgence.
On Saturday, February 24th at 9 and 10:30 pm, we close out our African History Month presentations, with a CD release event for saxophonist Eric Wyatt. With Mr. Wyatt, on his debut as a leader at Sistas’ Place, is what promises to be a very exciting band including the Bahamian trumpet sensation Giveton Gelin, and a powerful rhythm section consisting of pianist Benito Gonzalez, bassist Tyler Mitchell, and drummer Kassa Overall.
Brooklyn born Eric Wyatt has established himself as an important voice on the saxophone. He had the advantage of having a father who was a saxophonist and the great Sonny Rollins as another mentor. The latest of his five recordings, as a leader, is called Look to the Sky, and copies will be available Saturday night. Don’t miss this dynamic ensemble!
Music of the Spirit will sustain you through the challenging times we are experiencing.
