Celebrate Ornette–June 12

On Thursday, June 12, Celebrate Brooklyn! presents a free concert celebrating the jazz musician and composer Ornette Coleman.

The pioneering saxophonist and composer Ornette Coleman “expanded the jazz idiom more than anyone except perhaps Louis Armstrong,” but his influence reaches far beyond jazz. His son Denardo Coleman, an outstanding drummer who debuted on record with his father at the age of 10, convenes a deep and surprising lineup of special guests for a long-overdue exploration and celebration of Ornette’s music and spirit, with his own band at the core. An amazing line-up of special guests include Laurie Anderson, Patti Smith, Thurston Moore, Flea, Ravi Coltrane and many more.

Celebrate Brooklyn! Prospect Park Bandshell, 141 Prospect Park West, Brooklyn, New York, Thursday, June 12 at 7:00pm
