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 24th season with the music of Resistance, Resilience, and Resurgence. On Saturday, October 19th at 9 and 10:30pm, Ahmed Abdullah’s Diaspora Meet Francisco Mora Catlett’s AfroHORN with saxophonists Sam Newsome and Don Chapman; vocalist and poet Monique Ngozi Nri; pianist Aruan Ortiz; bassist RaDu ben Judah; percussionists Roman Diaz and Reggie Nicholson; multi-percussionist Francisco Mora Catlett; and trumpet, flugelhorn and vocals, Ahmed Abdullah.
Six months ago the bands of Diaspora (Dispersions of the Spirit of Ra) and AfroHORN went into the studio to document the historic pairing of the two groups. The result, Diaspora Meets AfroHORN, Music of the Spirit, Out of Sistas’ Place, will be presented this Saturday. The leaders of the combined ensembles, Ahmed Abdullah and Fransisco Mora Catlett are veterans of the Sun Ra Arkestra and what they have accomplished on this CD is a synergistic musical experience that can best be described as a “happening!”
Don’t miss your chance to hear the music and take the CD home!
