Coleman, the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a MacArthur Fellowship [nicknamed the Genius Award], and the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award is making a return performance at Bartram’s Garden. He's bringing his superb ensemble the Five Elements featuring Philadelphia's own, bassist Anthony Tidd.

 

The performance, falling a week before a lunar eclipse, serves to celebrate Coleman’s connection to nature and the way his compositions draw on nature, metaphysics, and sciences, integrating patterns derived from the cycles and relationships of the planets in our solar system. Coleman has often stated his desire “to be able to look at a mountain and literally play the mountain and to look at the flight pattern of a bee, the flight pattern of a bird, and play that. Or have that directly influence my music, so almost be able to look at nature as one big gesture.”

 

The event is free. Yes. Free!! Steve Coleman & Five Elements perform at 7pm with a pre-concert discussion between Coleman and acclaimed jazz critic John Szwed at 6pm.

 

This unique ocassion to hear Steve Coleman perform under the trees in Bartram’s Garden, the oldest botanic garden in North America, is an opportunity to see and "hear" where science and the spirit cross paths.

Philly Jazz Quotes

The stuff McCoy Tyner did was earth-shattering for me. The modal thing, the way he voiced chords in fourths, the way he used the pentatonic scale -- all those things were very new.
Kenny Barron
