Winter Jazz Fest
Monday, January 15th, 2018
Presented in association with Terri Lyne Carrington, Motema Music and Ora Harris On Martin Luther King's Birthday, Monday January 15, the festival will honor the memory of the late pianist-composer-educator and innovator, Geri Allen, who passed in June 2017, weeks after celebrating her 60th birthday. Allen's close collaborator and friend, Terri Lyne Carrington organized musicians in tribute to this saddening loss for the community. "The jazz community will never be the same with the loss of one of our geniuses, Geri Allen. Her virtuosity and musicality are unparalleled," said Carrington upon learning of her passing. "I will miss my sister and friend, but I am thankful for all of the music she made and all of the incredible experiences we had together for over 35 years. She is a true original -- one of a kind -- never to be forgotten. My heart mourns, but my spirit is filled with the gift of having known and learned from Geri Allen." Thus far, confirmed participants include Angela Davis, S. Epatha Merkerson, Esperanza Spalding, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dianne Reeves, Farah Jasmine Griffin, Jack DeJohnette, Terri Lyne Carrington, Jeff 'Tain' Watts, Ravi Coltrane, Vijay Iyer, Mino Cinelu, Linda May Han Oh, Jaimeo Brown, Ingrid Jensen, Tia Fuller, Kris Davis, Kassa Overall, and Maurice Chestnut. Additional artists will be announced shortly. *All proceeds from Monday's concert will go to the Geri Allen Estate.
