We shine a spotlight on Myers, Mitchell and Irreversible Entanglements poet Camae Ayewa (a.k.a. Moor Mother) — three generations of Black women whose monumental contributions to the continuum of creative music has forever altered its pathways. Set one will feature solos, duos and trios between Myers, Mitchell and Ayewa. In the second set, Irreversible Entanglements takes the stage, first as an instrumental quartet (alto saxophonist Keir Neuringer, trumpeter Aquiles Navarro, double bassist Luke Stewart and Tcheser Holmes on drums), and then together with Ayewa, Mitchell and Myers for the world premiere of a new collaborative piece. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=353543 Merkin Concert Hall At Kaufman Music Center Merkin Concert Hall At Kaufman Music Center
