On Monday, March 21, at the Clef Club, jazz luminaries will unite for a benefit concert to celebrate Philadelphia saxophonist and composer Odean Pope. This all-star event will help raise funds for Pope, who has struggled with Bipolar Disorder for three decades. We hope you will be able to join us for this very special night of music and to help a local hero who has been a vital fixture of Philadelphia’s jazz community for over 50 years. For more information on Pope’s battle against Bipolar Disorder, please read Friday’s Philadelphia Inquirer article by Annette John-Hall.

In addition to comedian, author, and jazz advocate Bill Cosby, award-winning poet Sonia Sanchez, and a set by the Odean Pope Saxophone Choir with Ravi Coltrane, the 13 ensembles performing will include musicians Reggie Workman, Kenny Barron, Bobby Zankel, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Pat Martino, and Duane Eubanks, to name only a few.

For the complete line-up, please refer to the Ars Nova Workshop event page. Tickets for the event can be purchased here, and all proceeds go to the Odean Pope Fund.

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.
