RICHARD HOWELL

MR.TIPPLE'S, 39 Fell street, San Francisco, CA

"We will create BRIDGE MUSIC at that moment." One of the critical elements of "jazz" is improvisation. As a rule, the musicians play original compositions or standard tunes. We will not rehearse. We will take risks from being on the "spot" to create. I assemble some outstanding improvisers to take you on the pathway of bridging us all together. I wanted to call this group "the risk takers," but it is a tribute to those who came before us that did not have the choice but to take risks, create and improvise to survive. Our music will be spontaneously created in this spirit, and we will all have fun!

The vast and luminous legacy of pianist and harpist Turiya Alice Coltrane (1937-2007) shines more brightly than ever these days. In the decade after the 1967 death of her husband, saxophone legend John Coltrane, she helped pioneer the cosmic jazz movement and released more than a dozen albums. Spearheaded by bass giant and NEA Jazz Master Reggie Workman, a close associate of both John and Alice Coltrane, this unprecedented collaboration with Brooklyn Raga Massive’s Jay Gandhi (bansuri), Mari Tanaka (tanpura) and Sameer Gupta (drum set and tabla) draws on her love of Indian music and culture. A cast of Bay Area jazz mainstays join the celebration, including powerhouse tenor saxophonist Richard Howell, pianist Kev Choice, bassist David Ewell, and jazz harpist and vocalist Destiny Muhammad, whose entrancing sojourns into classic Turiya albums like Journey in Satchidananda have helped raise awareness of Alice Coltrane’s beatific music.

Join us for a special artist conversation with Reggie Workman, Destiny Muhammad and Richard Howell the day before, Friday, June 10, 6:30pm at MoAD, free admission.
