Presented by Guelph Jazz Festival:
GJF: Milford Graves, D.D. Jackson, Kidd Jordan (USA/Canada)
So many streams of tradition come together in this remarkable trio, from the horizons of free improvisation to “avant-garde calypsos”! Drummer Milford Graves was a pioneer of free jazz in 1960s New York, where he made waves with Don Pullen, Paul Bley, Albert Ayler and the New York Art Quartet, and went on to become known for his work as an acupuncturist, herbalist, martial artist, and music therapist. Edward “Kidd” Jordan brings years of experience, both as an R&B saxophonist, and as an influential jazz educator at New Orleans’ Southern University. D.D. Jackson is the Ottawa-born, New York-based pianist whose opera “Québecité” (with libretto by George Elliott Clarke) premiered at the 2003 Guelph Jazz Festival.
