STINGRAY DJAZZ PRESENTS: HALLOWEEN SPECIAL
OCTOBER 31 AT 21:00 CET
Unlike Christmas, Halloween has thematically never been strongly presented in jazz. Apart from a handful of numbers from the 1930s, the genre's repertoire seems to have never matched the spooky atmosphere of that last evening of October. Much more common ground is found between the day after Halloween – All Saints’ Day – and spiritual and free jazz. Hence, Stingray DJAZZ invites you to enjoy the premiere of a spine-tingling double bill in those genres on 'All Hallows Eve': watch Gill Evans' and Ornette Coleman's 1978 performance from the German Schloss Ansbach on October 31 at 21:00 CET.
Gil Evans, Ornette Coleman - Schloss Ansbach
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 31 AT 21:00 CET
This program presents two concerts from Schloss Ansbach in 1978. The first concert features Gil Evans and his orchestra, consisting of Gil Evans on piano, Steve Lacy on soprano saxophone, Arthur Blythe on alto saxophone, Pit Levin on synthesizers, Earl McIntyre on trombone, Lewis Soloff on trumpet, Geoffrey Berlin on bass and Sue Evans on percussion instruments. The second concert features saxophonist Ornette Coleman at the peak of his musically expressive powers. Coleman is joined by Bern Nix on guitar, Charles Ellerbee on guitar, Albert Arnold on bass, and Shannon Jackson on drums and percussion.
