Legendary Strata-East Label Celebrates 50 Years - Led By Charles Tolliver With Narrator Danny Glover On September 1-4 At Birdland


Sign in to view read count
One of the finest jazz trumpeters around today who began his career during the 1960s Blue Note period is Charles Tolliver. But his finest albums were recorded for Strata-East, a label he co-founded in 1970 with Stanley Cowell, and it's still around today.

STRATA-EAST RECORDS @ 50 with Charles Tolliver & the Strata-East All Stars featuring Billy Harper, George Cables, Buster Williams, Lenny White AND guest screen star activist Danny Glover as narrator.

Due to unforeseen circumstances brought about by an emergency dental procedure for Charles requiring proper healing time which would extend past the original scheduled June 16 date, the show has been rescheduled. The livestream concert celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Strata-East Records with Charles Tolliver & the Strata-East All Stars featuring Billy Harper, George Cables, Buster Williams, Lenny White AND guest narrator Danny Glover is now rescheduled and will take place at the “Jazz Corner Of The World” BIRDLAND in Manhattan, New York City.

The Strata-East All Stars will perform nightly at Birdland from September 1-4, 2021, with 2 shows nightly, to a live audience culminating in the livestream on September 4th, presented by Pure Pleasure, to celebrate worldwide the 50th Anniversary of this history making artist-owned label.

We look forward to everybody, fans, and supporters in the vicinity of NYC joining in this historic celebration in-person live September 1-4, and fans, and supporters around the world joining in by purchasing tickets to the livestream which, as before, will be available for 48 hours worldwide to accommodate the different time zones.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
