Jaimeo Brown: Transcendence
Friday, September 28 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm
Jazz has an indelible history of protest, and in a time of conflict and trouble, transcendence is recognition of the musician’s role as philosopher, and the potential of art to ask questions, build ideas and contribute to meaningful social change. Transcendence seeks to enable a potentially self-sufficient community to use history, art and technology to inspire and advance culture. If you want to know what is important to a people – listen to their music. Featured musicians for the evening are Jaimeo Brown on drums and electronics, Chris Sholar on guitar and electronics, and Jaleel Shaw on alto sax and electronics.
