The concert takes place Friday, April 24, 2015 at 8pm at the Community Education Center, 3500 Lancaster Ave, Philadelphia, PA, 19104. Admission is $20 Advance $15 at Door for adults and $10 for students with I.D.

As festival curator, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, draws on his experience performing in music festivals worldwide over the last two decades. His aim is to bring this exciting experience home to Philadelphia by gathering musical mentors and colleagues who exemplify the riches of Philadelphia’s creative jazz music culture, and to provide a setting for these artists to stretch their musical imaginations in front of a diverse audience. Collaborating presenter The Producer’s Guild was founded in 1975 by Leo Gadson and Jerome Gethers to “ensure that the appreciation and enthusiasm for the rich cultural heritage of African American Arts continues to thrive in Philadelphia, especially Black classical music—commonly known as jazz.”

Tacuma is a recipient of a 2011 Pew Fellowship, an award given annually to exceptional Philadelphia artists by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. Other Pew Fellows performing in The Outsiders Festival include Orrin Evans, Marshall Allen, Charles Cohen and Chuck Treece.

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.
