Jason Moran: The Harlem Hellfighters

October 30 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Composer, pianist and visual artist Jason Moran celebrates and reflects on the legacy of James Reese Europe, the iconic figure in the evolution of African-American music who introduced war-torn France to the sound of Jazz in the closing years of WWI.  Members of Moran’s long-established trio, The Bandwagon, alongside a group of brass and wind players drawn from today’s richly talented new generation of British musicians will perform new music by Jason Moran, reimagining James Reese Europe’s original music. The performance will also feature visual contributions from filmmaker John Akomfrah and cinematographer Bradford Young.
