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 23rd season with the music of Resistance, Resilience and Resurgence.
On Saturday, May 4th at 9 and 10:30 pm, the 20th Central Brooklyn Jazz Festival at Sistas’ Place continues with the Frank Lacy Sextet featuring trumpeter/flugelhornist Josh Evans, saxophonist Stacy Dilliard, pianist Jon Elbaz, bassist Radu Ben Judah, and drummer Taru Alexander.
Frank Lacy is one of the geniuses of this music. His work with greats like Art Blakey, Lester Bowie, Slide Hampton, Roy Hargrove, Henry Threadgill, McCoy Tyner, and his longstanding relationship with the Mingus Dynasty, has established him as an artist of world-class status. One of the things to help establish Sistas’ Place, as a Historic Landmark Institution, was the fact that we initiated Conversations, a forum that was geared to educate the African American community to the great artists in our midst. With Mr. Lacy’s initial performance at Sistas’ Place during this Central Brooklyn Jazz Festival, we have decided to re-initiate Conversations with Frank Lacy, which will be between the 1st and 2nd sets!
