The Boston Creative Jazz Scene, Then and Now
May 1, 2016 at 7:00 pm–9:30 pm
The wild and woolly free jazz era of the 1970s comes to life at an event inspired by the highly praised album produced by Cultures of Soul Records with an historical essay by musician Mark Harvey, who was there through it all. The essay chronicles prominent members of the scene – including Syd Smart, Leonard Brown, John Voigt, Jon Damian, Tom Plsek, Lowell Davidson, Stan Strickland, Stanton Davis, Phill Musra, Baird Hersey, and Jamyll Jones – and influential events like the inaugural John Coltrane Memorial Concert.
For this Jazz Week event, conversations with musicians featured on the album – Arni Cheatham, Peter Bloom, Mark Harvey – alternate with improvised music by veteran experimenters and some of the most intrepid adventurers among today’s generation of improvisers.
