LONDON Southbank Centre / Royal Festival Hall
The EFG London Jazz Festival teams up with Gilles Peterson's We Out Here Festival to bring back to life the project that celebrates legendary saxophonist and composer Gary Bartz's influential music.
In his musical journey spanning from being a sideman to Charles Mingus, Max Roach, Miles Davis and Art Blakey, to a solo career marking him as the luminary of the fusion movement of the 70s, Gary Bartz recorded impactful albums such as Another Earth, which took inspirations from John Coltrane's iconic A Love Supreme.
After celebrating the 50th anniversary of this iconic release in New York at the beginning of this year, Gary Bartz comes to London accompanied by UK's leading spiritual jazz outfit Maisha's musicians led by Jake Long.
This fascinating band also features singer Dwight Trible with his deep-rooted, soulful sound with a special guest; the MOBO award-winning, jazz-inspired vocalist Zara McFarlane.
