A great night in Harlem

The event began with actor-activist Danny Glover leading a tribute to civil rights leader Julian Bond, who died earlier this year. Glover called Bond a “freedom fighter” and inspiration for the “young black adults who give life” to the Black Lives Matter movement. For much of the night, the stage was filled to capacity with jazz, rock and rhythm and blues artists. Ravi Coltrane, Donald Fagen and Jack DeJohnette were among the many performers playing some of Rollins’ best known work, including a relaxed and joyous run-through of “Paul’s Pal,” a fierce update of the Rollins-John Coltrane duet “Tenor Madness” and the Rollins standard “St. Thomas.”

Spontaneous Invention

Jack DeJohnette · Ravi Coltrane · Matt Garrison performed two sold-out sets at ShapeShifter Lab in Brooklyn on Saturday night, this trio flowed through a small handful of compositions, connecting most of them with solo or duo interludes. Nate Chinen from The New York times visited one of the sets and did this great review. Learn more here
