THIS SUNDAY! SESSION No.1 – FREEDOM: The Art Of Improvisation

“In composition you have all the time you want to decide what to say in 15 seconds, in improvisation you have 15 seconds.” Steve Lacy

Freedom EFLYER(3)Greetings…  Seems like a rare occasion these days that I’m offered a little deejay slot and therefore get to dig DEEP into the vinyl.

However, on the third Sunday of each month… THIS SUNDAY!… I shall be joining Orphy Robinson and the Jazz Warriors International crew for a combination session at Charlie Wrights in Pitfield Street, Hoxton….. (little nod of respect to John!)

FREEDOM is the name of the game and I shall provide the ridim & sounds around 2 sets of pure-live-free-style that pays homage to Sam Rivers’ legendary jam sessions,  the AACM and the St Louis group amongst others.

Already in the box:  Julius Hemphill, Cedric Brooks & The Divine Light, Gato Barbieri, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Black Arthur Blythe, Grachan Moncur III, McCoy Tyner, Amiri Baraka, Human Arts Ensemble, Defunkt, Yusef Lateef, Dudu Pukwana .. maybe even Parliament and Miles….

I believe Orphy’s building the live sessions with Claude (Deppa)…   So, if you wanna play? Get there early and get your name down!

GATE FEE is a modest 5 quid… put it in the diary right now!

“Jazz is there & gone. It happens. You have to be present for it. That simple.”

Keith Jarrett
