Join Ars Nova Workshop in celebrating the birthday of Chicago percussionist Kahil El'Zabar and the release of Big M: a Tribute to Malachi Favors (Delmark Records), the new CD from the Ritual Trio recorded as a tribute to the late Art Ensemble of Chicago's Malachi Favors, who passed away in 2004.

Kahil El'Zabar is one of Chicago's jazz treasures. A member of the AACM, music holds no boundaries for El'Zabar, who has not only played alongside a myriad of jazz greats such as Cannonball Adderley and Dizzy Gillespie, but in the bands of Stevie Wonder and Nina Simone as well as recording with Sonia Dada and Poi Dog Pondering. For this very special appearance, his Ritual Trio is joined by NY legend Billy Bang, well known for his collaborations with Sun Ra, Sam Rivers, Don Cherry, Bill Laswell, and guitarist James “Blood" Ulmer.

Philadelphia's Sonic Liberation Front is a band without peers. Combining free jazz with Afro-Cuban percussion and modern electronics, Sonic Liberation Front has forged an incredible sound assemblage - one that has sailed to new levels on their forthcoming release “Change Over Time". SLF is continuing on the paths of Sun Ra, Albert Ayler, Ornette Coleman, and Art Ensemble of Chicago - new dimensions of folk art forms of tomorrow.

THIS IS THE CONCERT EVENT OF THE SEASON! NOT TO BE MISSED!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
