A Pantheon of Musical Heroes
Jazz Legends at Soutbank Centre

Saturday 16th July

The Jazz Cafe and the Southbank Centre present a pantheon of cosmic and spiritual jazz musicians at Southbank’s Royal Festival Hall this Summer.

With a catalogue of over 150 albums and unique philosophy, Sun Ra Arkestra perform their legendary live performance under the direction of band leader Marshall Allen.

Jazz drummer, composer, arranger and producer Norman Connors has worked with the likes of Archie Shepp and Pharoah Sanders, going onto produce some of the most cherished R&B hits of the 70s.

Jean Carne has recorded and shared the stage with artists, producers and songwriters including Stevie Wonder, Lou Rawls, The O’Jays, Earth, Wind & Fire and MFSB. When living in New York, she met and married jazz pianist Doug Carn and partnered with him in what would become a trendsetting jazz-fusion tradition.

Gary Bartz joined Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in 1965, and by 1970 was asked by Miles Davis to perform with his band at the Isle of Wight Festival. Bartz’ own group NTU Troop (after the Bantu word for ‘unity’) blended soul, funk, African folk music, hard bop and avant-garde jazz on albums like I’ve Known Rivers and Other Bodies.

Bobby Lyle and the Starship Orchestra also feature, joined by Marva King and other special guests.
