GIL SCOTT-HERON TO RELEASE I'M NEW HERE FEBRUARY 9
Gil Scott-Heron will release his first album in 15 years on February 9, titled I'm New Here. As if he never left, Gil continues to throw down the gauntlet; challenging us to get involved, be informed, retain a sense of humor and do the right thing. Throughout his career Gil has presented complex issues in a direct yet poetic manner through music of sincerity and integrity.
Born in Chicago on April 1, 1949, Gil Scott-Heron is one of the most influential and important American singer/songwriters of the late 20th century. In a career spanning five decades he has released over 15 albums and played shows in over 40 countries.
Scott-Heron currently has one confirmed show; April 18 at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival.

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.
