World Premiere of Sonic Universe Project: Douglas Ewart/Wadada Leo Smith/Roscoe Mitchell/Oliver Lake/Anthony Cox/Hamid Drake
Saturday, March 3

$30 ($24 Walker members)

An all-star lineup of master jazz innovators spanning three cities (Minneapolis, New York, and Chicago) and two generations creates a new sextet for an exclusive Walker engagement. The ensemble includes visionary trumpeter/composer Wadada Leo Smith, a transformative figure in jazz; powerhouse saxophonist/composer Roscoe Mitchell, a founding member of the Art Ensemble of Chicago; Hamid Drake, one of the great drummers working in jazz and global music today; Oliver Lake, longtime member of the World Saxophone Quartet; bassist Anthony Cox, one of Minnesota’s most in-demand musicians for years; and composer/flutist/saxophonist Douglas Ewart, who helped bring these master musicians together.
