Steve Coleman and Five Elements @FSC Night 1

The Fulton Street Collective is proud to present the first of two performances with M-Base founder, composer, and alto saxophonist Steve Coleman & Five Elements on Monday April 23.

Widely regarded as one of the most influential jazz musicians in the last 30 years, Coleman has worked with Dave Holland, Geri Allen, Cassandra Wilson, Sam Rivers, and Ravi Coltrane. A recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship and the Doris Duke Award, the Chicago native’s Five Elements “came up with the M-Base concept in 1985 (‘macro-basic array of spontaneous extemporization’) developed complex musical theories about integrating the rhythms of funk, soul, world music, and jazz.”
