Reggie Workman Curates February Festival in New York

Reggie Workman’s Sculpted Sounds Music Festival, a four-concert series that presents different kinds of futuristic music and concepts from bassist Reggie Workman, will be held throughout February at the legendary St. Peter’s Church in New York City.

The festival will be hosted by Gil Noble (host of WABC-TV’s weekly public affairs series Like It Is) and will feature numerous jazz musicians, jazz biographers and poets. Among the highlights are Great Friends (featuring Workman on bass), Billy Harper, the Rashied Ali Quintet, the Charles Gayle Trio, Bassdrumbone, and the African-American Legacy Project, a 40-piece orchestra and chorus led by Charles Tolliver and Richard Harper and featuring baritone saxophonist Howard Johnson, pianist Stanley Cowell, trumpeter Jimmy Ownes, and many more distinguished veterans.
