The only New York appearance this season of the wonderful musical innovator and 2-time Grammy award winner, TAJ MAHAL in concert to benefit the Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory Of Music on Saturday, February 9 at 8pm.

The legendary Taj Mahal has been playing his own distinctive brand of soulful music, variously described as Afro-Caribbean blues, folk-world-blues, hula blues, folk-funk, and a host of other hyphenations, for more than 40 years. In 1971, he released the influential album The Real Thing recorded live at the Fillmore East, where he was backed by four tubas. This concert reunites him with four of those musicians, Howard Johnson, Bob Stewart, Joe Daley and Earl McIntyre (Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory of Music's Jazz Division Director), as well as veterans Buddy Williams, Earl Gardner, Victor See Yuen, John di Martino, Ron Jackson and Jerome Harris. Together these musicians comprise a living history of jazz.

The Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory of Music has been serving the community for over a century promoting individual, professional and community growth through music, and making music accessible to people of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels. One of the ways they fulfill their mission is by holding remarkable events such as this at affordable prices. Their commitment to the community and their world-class faculty makes these events a reality.

This concert promises to be an unforgettable Jazz at the Conservatory concert event, and check out The Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory of Music's other great concerts, programs, classes and much more at www.BQCM.org

CRAIG HARRIS’ GOD’S TROMBONES

 Liberation Music Orchestra

Harlem Stage Gatehouse

Fri Dec 5th - Sat Dec 6th - Mon Dec 8th at 7:30 PM

Sun Dec 7th at 3:00 PM
God’s Trombones, created by acclaimed composer/trombonist Craig Harris, comes back to Harlem after last spring’s most joyous and inspiring work-in-progress presentation at the Apollo Theater.

Harlem Stage presents the work for a limited run as a special production of its WaterWorks series.


God’s Trombones is a musical interpretation of James Weldon Johnsons’
1927 classic collection of poems that refigures inspirational sermons by traveling African American preachers.

Harris’ interpretation transcends the sectarian roots of the sermons and focuses on their universal spirituality, reinterpreting them for a contemporary audience.
