This evening features a very specialmeeting of new and old friends. Jazz legend and master improviser saxophonist Oliver Lake is reunited with guitar wizard Michael Gregory Jackson. In the late 70s and early 80s, they cut a sting of classic albums together with Pheeron akLaff changing the sound of the sax/guitar/drums trio format (Bill Frisell has cited Michael Gregory Jackson as an influence). Since then, Lake has been very active playing with the World Saxophone Quartet, Meshell Ndegeochello and others and recorded dozens of classic albums as a leader. Michael Gregory Jackson disapeared from the New York scene for many years and this is a rare chance to see him perform his highly personal guitar style in the city. This event is the lastin a series of concerts at Cornelia Street Cafe centered around Danish drummer/composer Kresten Osgood. Osgood, one of Scandinavias most active players and a leader of the vibrant improvised music scene in Copenhagen, has collaborated with such diverse musicians as Sam Rivers, Derek Bailey, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Tim Berne, Steven Bernstein, Dr. Lonnie Smith and Michael Blake.

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.
