Blue Stem Jazz Presents Kahil El’Zabar’s Ethnic Heritage Ensemble

Sat February 29 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$30

The Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, featuring:
Corey Wilkes/trumpet
Alex Harding/baritone sax
Kahil El’Zabar/multi-percussion/vocals/composition

The sound of the current version of the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble’s funky sound is best summed up in Stef Gijssels’ Free Jazz Collective Blog review: “Their sound is still so grooving, bopping and dancing that it is among the most infectious music you can find. El’Zabar has the incredible strength to draw any audience inside his music and make them part of it, which explains why many of his albums are live performances. Not many jazz bands are as welcoming as this one.”

The success of Kahil El’Zabar’s innovative and creative vision is evidenced not only by the substance and breadth of his career, but also by its longevity. Coming of age in Chicago during the early years of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, he is an integral part of that legacy of Great Black Music. Living a life not devoid of its own complexities, he continues his unyielding dedication to his unique musical vision — to use improvisation as “the key to finding new discoveries in old approaches. “

The trio’s other members are formidable in their own right. Trumpeter Corey Wilkes honed his craft at the Berklee College of Music, has filled the void left by Lester Bowie in the Art Ensemble of Chicago, and tours internationally with numerous ensembles. Baritone Saxophonist Alex Harding has recorded or performed with a who’s-who of creative musicians including: Julius Hemphill, Lester Bowie, Hamiet Bluiett, Greg Osby, and the Mingus Big Band.
