    Billy Harper

    New York Times article on Billy Harper, now 80 years old. https://www.nytimes.com/2023/01/16/arts/music/billy-harper.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share&referringSource=articleShare&fbclid=IwAR0HAiaLtIJiNSNnr8jEIqvWKCzxU6nKYr9foWRVM5qXZnr5-rj2Brj1Kqk
  7. WADADA LEO SMITH: PURPLE KIKUYU QUARTET We are excited to announce the return of Wadada Leo Smith, who will be joining us to celebrate Ten Years of Big Ears with his Purple Kikuyu Quartet. He last graced our stages in 2019 and also appeared alongside Vijay Iyer at the 2016 festival. One of the most creative composers and trumpeters in jazz for over half a century, Smith, at 81 years old, has finally attained the legendary status he deserves. As explained and illustrated in DownBeat, Smith has created his own musical language, Ankhrasmation, and his colorful scores are exhibited in galleries as paintings. A Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2013 for his masterwork about the Civil Rights Movement, Ten Freedom Summers, Smith was the JazzTimesArtist of the Year in 2016 as well as a recipient of the coveted Doris Duke Performing Artist Award. Perhaps the only artist in history to be featured on the cover of DownBeat twice in less than a year, he received a trifecta of awards in 2017 from that prestigious publication: Artist, Trumpeter, and Album of the Year, for his Cuneiform album America’s National Parks. His Purple Kikuyu Quartet will feature Pheeroan Aklaff on drums, Ashley Walters on cello, and Erika Dohi on piano. Our friend Rob Rushin-Knopf recently wrote a superb feature covering Smith's 50+ year career in music that is equally informative for readers new to his work in creative music as well as long-time fans. Salvation South: Wadada Leo Smith Invites You to Listen TRIO IMAGINATION Trio Imagination is the new trio of drummer Andrew Cyrille, bassist Reggie Workman, and Cuban pianist David Virelles, which formed after Oliver Lake retired from performing in early 2020, breaking up TRIO 3, his longtime trio with Andrew and Reggie. The Bang on a Can Festival in New York City asked who else they might want to play with, and Reggie and Andrew both named David. The trio exudes a profusion of chemistry and stage presence. Individually their credentials are off the charts: Andrew has played with everyone from Coleman Hawkins to Mary Lou Williams to Cecil Taylor, and he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Vision Festival in New York City last year. He returns to Big Ears after his two magnificent duo encounters, with Ambrose Akinmusire and Marc Ribot, at the 2022 festival. Reggie, who in his youth played bass with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and John Coltrane, was recently named an NEA Jazz Master. David, still in his 30’s, has already recorded and played with some of the most creative musicians in jazz, including Henry Threadgill, Chris Potter, Steve Coleman, and Ravi Coltrane, and he was named a Piano Rising Star by DownBeat in 2017. His 2022 album Nuna dives deep into his continued interest in exploring the rich, varied, rhythmically charged music of his native Cuba.

  10. World music focus at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival 2023 The Cultural Exchange Pavilion spotlights Puerto Rico in 2023 Following the cancellation of its 2020 event, Jazz Fest renews its commitment to celebrate Puerto Rico in 2023 through colorful artist demonstrations, live music and dance showcases, parades, cultural displays, photo exhibits and authentic cuisine. Inspired by Alynda Segarra’s 2017 song “Pa’lante” – a fierce ode to her people’s resilience in the wake of hurricane Maria –- Jazz Fest’s celebration of Puerto Rico Pa’lante Puerto Rico! or Onward Puerto Rico! highlights the vibrant music and culture of the island, which remains strong despite the devastating effects of hurricanes, earthquakes, and the pandemic over the past few years. Puerto Rican bomba, plena, salsa and reggaeton rhythms will echo across the Festival grounds with daily parades and live performances on various stages, and inside the Cultural Exchange Pavilion. Reggaeton artist Farruko headlines the musical line-up with 12 bands ranging from Mayaguez’ traditional bomba ensemble La Raȉz to Loiza’s urban bomba sounds of Tribu de Abrante, and from the traditional jibaro repertoire of Conjunto Típico Samaritano to local techno drum band ÌFÉ. Strolling through the Fair Grounds over both weekends, colorful Vejigantes – Puerto Rico’s iconic masked folk characters – will lead daily parades with La Casa de La Plena Tito Matos. Another highlight of the presentation includes Hurray for the Riff Raff’s leader Alynda Segarra drawing from her Puerto Rican roots for a special show at the Cultural Exchange Pavilion. New this year, the Cultural Exchange Village comes to life outside the performance tent with artist demonstrations, daily parades and samplings of Puerto Rican dishes presented by FOWLMOUTH in collaboration with Carmo Restaurant. Vejigante mask maker Raul Ayala, bomba dress designer Milteri Concepción, and güiro maker Edwin Curbelo will be among a dozen artists and master craftsmen demonstrating their creative process in the Cultural Exchange Village. While spotlighting Puerto Rico, the Cultural Exchange Pavilion Stage continues to present its signature blend of local and international performers from around the world, with special appearances by Bassekou Kouyate of Mali, Mdou Moctar of Niger, and by Colombian artists Ceferina Banquez and Rey Vellanato & Beto Jamaica.
