Sistas’ Place, 456 Nostrand Avenue, at the corner of Jefferson Avenue, where Jazz: A Music of the Spirit Lives and Culture is our Weapon, announces its 24th season of bringing the greatest artists on the planet back into the African American community of Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Join us at for a fantastic LIVE JAZZ performance featuring trombonist/composer/bandleader CRAIG HARRIS and his “Tailgaters Tales” Quintet featuring Craig Harris (Trombone), Jay Rodriguez (Saxophone), Yoichi Uzeki (Piano), Calvin Jones (Bass), and Jerome Jennings (Drums). They meld intricate composition driven by imaginative improvisation.
Tailgaters Tales is a vehicle focusing on the Trombone where concept, composition and improvisation intersect in the gray area and become one. This is Craig’s core group and an outlet for him as an improviser and composer to stretch out and tell musical stories from a trombone place.
“I want every voice heard. I want to touch on tradition but keep the sounds in constant transition. That way I can give the improvisers room enough to tell their own personal stories.”
Don’t Miss This!
