Sign in to view read count
As part of its Conversations Series, the Center's renowned faculty will engage leading composer Steve Coleman in a reflection on the role of improvisation in his creative life.

Steve Coleman is one of the most influential saxophonists and composers of the last 30 years, as well as an important theorist of the music and its spiritual and social implications. He is one of the most travelled musicians of our time, having taught and worked with musicians in Ghana, Cuba, Puerto Rico, India, Egypt, Brazil, Indonesia, and Europe. Coleman is a founder of the influential Brooklyn collective M-Base, and his ensembles and projects have been presented at the Parisian computer music center IRCAM. He is also active as a teacher and producer. His most recent recordings include Harvesting Semblances and Affinities on Pi Records, and Weaving Symbolics on Label Bleu.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
