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 21st season with the music of Resistance, Resilience, and Resurgence. On Saturday, June 10, 2017, at 9 and 10:30 pm, we kick off our summer program of special performances beginning with Winard Harper and Jeli Posse featuring saxophonist Antonio Hart, trumpeter Ted Chubb, pianist Norman Simmons, bassist Vince Dupont and the leader on drums.
This is certainly a special performance for Mr. Harper who has, in the Art Blakey tradition, most often found young talent to present on his excursions to our venue. However, we will be in for a treat this Saturday because the great pianist Norman Simmons, who has accompanied Betty Carter, Carmen McRae, Joe Williams and Anita O’Day, just to name a few, will be performing along with the younger master of the alto saxophone, Antonio Hart. Given the fact that Winard Harper seems to always take no prisoners when he performs, this should be a special night, indeed. Don’t Miss It!!!
Our 22nd season opens on Saturday, September 23, 2017, with the Chico Freeman Quartet featuring Anthony Wonsey, Kenny Davis and Jerome Jennings playing the music of John Coltrane!
Music of the Spirit will sustain you through the challenging times we are experiencing.
