Remembering Geri Allen

Jul 30, 2017

Jazz Unlimited for Sunday, July 30 2017 will be “Remembering Geri Allen.”  Geri Allen was a pianist, composer, arranger, bandleader and visionary jazz educator who died last June.  Jazz Unlimited will pay tribute to her by playing music from her own Mary Lou Williams Collective and Timeline groups as well as with such musicians as Bobby Hutcherson, Andy Bey, Charlie Haden, Charles Lloyd, Roy Brooks, Betty Carter, T.S. Monk, our own Oliver Lake, David Murray, Andy Bey, Betty Carter, the Liberation Music Orchestra, Ravi Coltrane, Ralph Peterson, Jr., Frank Lowe, Hal Wilner and Ornette Coleman.

The Slide Show contains my photographs of some of the musicians heard on this show.

The Archive of this show will be available until the morning of August 7, 2017.
