When: Sat., Nov. 7, 8 p.m. 2015
It’s a night of Afro-futurist jazz from this Detroit/Chicago collective featuring Hanah Jon Taylor, Akhnek Kenneth Green, Dushun Mosley, and Darius Savage. Taylor is an educator and organizer; like most of the members, he has multiple ties to the AACM. Taylor is a true master of improvisation. Bandleader and pianist Green has performed nationally and internationally with what he refers to as some “very cool” improvisational giants, including Leroy Jenkins and Faruq Z. Bey. Savage has played a wide variety of music, from rock, punk and disco to jazz, salsa, gospel, and world music. This is really one not to miss.
