26th Season Opening!
Call (718) 398-1766 to reserve.
Sistas’ Place, 456 Nostrand Avenue, at the corner of Jefferson Avenue, where Jazz: A Music of the Spirit Lives and Culture is our Weapon, is in its 26th year with the music of Resistance, Resilience, and Resurgence. Sistas’ Place is a Historic Landmark Institution!
On Saturday, September 25th, at 9 and 10:30 pm, we begin our 26th season with a Tribute to Hamiet Bluiett (Arrival Day 9/16) and John Coltrane (Arrival Day 9/23), with the James Carter Quartet featuring pianist James Hurt, bassist Hilliard Greene, drummer Kahlil Kwame Bell, and the leader James Carter on woodwinds.
This is a very special opening in that we will be paying tribute to Bluiett, a person who was instrumental in helping us achieve the success of our first 25 years in our effort to bring our music back to the community of Bedford Stuyvesant. And as well, we will be paying tribute to John Coltrane whose last effort on the planet was to bring our music back to the community of Harlem.
For this VSOP opening, we have chosen a leader who epitomizes the best qualities of both of those master musicians. The amazing James Carter, who was mentored by Bluiett and performs with the same uncompromising spirit as John Coltrane, will open this season at Sistas’ Place, for the first time, with his own band! Don’t miss this!
Limited seating, call (718) 398-1766 to reserve your seat! Tickets in Advance Only.
