Announcing the world premiere of “The 5th Wheel", dancer/ choreographer Carmen deLavallade's and saxophonist/ composer Jane Ira Bloom's new collaborative work performed on Friday, September 28, 8:00pm at NY City Center Fall for Dance Festival.

“The 5th Wheel" is the latest piece in a continuing collaboration between legendary dancer/ choreographer Carmen deLavallade and innovative saxophonist/composer Jane Ira Bloom. It explores the spatial and sonic relationships between a dancer on wheels and a jazz quartet with one musician on the loose. The music based on Bloom's original piece Ice Dancing features a quartet of renowned jazz improvisers including bassist Rufus Reid, drummer Jerry Granelli, and pianist Dawn Clement and is the springboard for Ms. deLavallade's playful and evocative choreography.

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.
