Charles Tolliver's Big Band In Brooklyn!
Charles Tolliver's Big Band will perform a Benefit Concert for Sistas' Place on Friday, August 17, 2012. Benefit to be held at the Jazz @966, located at 966 Fulton Street in Brooklyn.
Opened in 1995, Sistas' Place coffee house has become a cultural institution in Bedford Stuyvesant. A collective of women decided to bring classic modern jazz back to our community. Phenomenal jazz musicians have performed there over the years. “Charles Tolliver is a truly great innovative artist, one of Diz’s (Gillespie) freshest and most skilled progeny in all aspects, compositionally, orchestration, and conducting,” to quote poet and author Amiri Baraka.
Tolliver and his sixteen piece Big Band will be performing for the first time in Brooklyn at this extraordinary benefit for Sistas’ Place. The concert will feature the music of John Coltrane's Africa Brass.
Don't miss this very special event. Tickets are $40. For more information call Sistas’ Place at (718) 398-1766. Transportation: B25 Bus on Fulton Street to Washington Ave. or by Train, take C local to Clinton/Washington station.
