7 - 9 pm: CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE, performed by The David Ambrosio Quintet

NY bassist David Ambrosio has created this project to feature the progressive jazz composers of the late 60’s Blue Note Era, like Bobby Hutcherson, Jackie McLean, Stanley Cowell, Harold Land, Joe Chambers, Duke Pearson and James Spaulding. During a time of important social change and civil unrest, much of this body of work was released decades later and consequently was not heard at the time for when it was written.

Exactly fifty years later in America we are seeing significant parallels in social movements to that era which gives this important music, while unfortunately not heard at the time, a new sense of relevancy.

Since their 2018 debut performance at NYC's Jazz Standard, CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE has been sharing this deeply swinging, heartfelt and progressive music with enthusiastic NY audiences, and we are thrilled that they will be bringing it to Mars Landing Galleries!
