A very special evening with:
Stan Strickland woodwinds, voice, percussion
Josh Rosen piano, compositions
and honored guest, master percussionist Ra-Kalam Bob Moses
The legendary musical spirit Ra-Kalam Bob Moses has performed with jazz greats Charles Mingus, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Gary Burton, Keith Jarrett, Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock, Jack DeJohnette, and John Medeski among many many others. Moses has created his own highly original musical world, with a unique palette of percussion colors. His innovations are informed by his NYC childhood, where he was immersed in the music of the city's jazz masters.
Strickland and Rosen have been performing together since 2007, creating a deep rapport of intimate, spontaneous music.
"Finishing each other's thoughts and phrases as these tunes wend their way from churchy soul-jazz to more abstract precincts, Rosen and Strickland are more than just in sync -- they often sound like a single musician playing two instruments." - Boston Herald
"With the soul of an improv jam session, these two are one of the tastiest, new treats to come along in a while." - Midwest Record
