Join guitarist Marvin Sewell and pianist Jason Moran for a special night of improvisational jazz inspired by the exhibition «Between Worlds: The Art of Bill Traylor.»
Tour the galleries before enjoying this musical conversation, as Sewell and Moran riff off the artworks and one another. Examining questions such as “what does 'Seated Woman' sound like?” they explore the connections between Traylor’s artwork and the music of his generation and pay tribute to the vast societal changes that artist Bill Traylor experienced–the Civil War, Emancipation, Reconstruction, Jim Crow segregation, and the steady rise of African American urban culture in the South. For one night only, this interpretative, improvisational performance is not to be missed.
