Pianist and composer Dave Burrell premieres Harlem Renaissance, the latest iteration of his continuing exploration of the Harlem Renaissance, presented in tribute to the Civil Rights activist and entertainer Josephine Baker. The piece centers on the interaction between piano and dancer Marguerite Hemmings and J'royce Jata, augmented by a brass line featuring Ted Daniel, Steve Swell, and Dick Griffin, and rhythm section of William Parker and Hamid Drake. Piano and dance take turns leading and following the ensemble, blurring lines between composition and free improvisation.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
