This multi-horn ensemble is founded by percussionist David Daoud Williams, and is heavily grounded in the loft scene of the 1970s. This is jazz with a world beat, paying homage to the all-important African roots of jazz. The band has had numerous jazz legends as its members, including Archie Shepp, Randy Weston, Pharoah Sanders, Eddie Henderson, Kenny Barron, and Joe Ford. The Ensemble also has deep Paris roots, and is regularly heard in the city’s great jazz clubs, and has collaborated with many great French jazz musicians. This performance is presented as part of the William Paterson residency of the great artist, activist and Paterson native Ben Jones, funded in part by a grant from the Mellon Foundation.
