Event description

The 1960s formation of the civil rights movement prompted major political and cultural shifts across the United States. This transformation affected the way jazz was performed and heard, with artists using music as a vehicle of protest through the avant-garde and ‘outside’ strains. Artists like Albert Ayler, John Coltrane, Pharaoh Sanders and the Art Ensemble of Chicago paved the way for a new approach to performance and expression. Join KRTU’s Music Director, Kory Cook for an in-depth Jazz feature of Protest Music and the Avant Garde of the 1960s.
