Jason Moran and The Bandwagon with Ryan Trecartin, Lizzie Fitch, and Ashland Mines: The Last Jazz Fest
Friday–Saturday, May 18–19
8 pm
$35 ($28 Walker members)
McGuire Theater

Celebrated jazz pianist/composer/visual artist Jason Moran returns to the Walker to present Jazz Fest, a new multimedia performance that examines the various ways jazz functions: as freedom music, as a model of democracy, and as a prop. The work features Moran’s trio the Bandwagon (with bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Nasheet Waits) in collaboration with prescient artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin, whose narrative-driven video installations explore the fluid nature of identity, community, and cultural subjectivity.


“Not only a pianist and composer but also a fluent traveler in the realm of contemporary art.” —New York Times
