Info

Resonant Motion, Inc. presents the fourth of four events in its 2019 Jazz Up Close series, "Can I Get A Witness - Jazz Composition as Storytelling." This year's guests for the popular program, now in its fifth year, will share and discuss a variety of original compositions inspired by and used to tell stories through the medium of instrumental jazz.

For this event drummer and composer Gerald Cleaver leads a quartet, accompanied by saxophonist Kris Allen, bassist Henry Lugo and pianist and series curator Noah Baerman. With well over 100 recording credits to his name, drummer Gerald Cleaver is a ubiquitous presence on the NYC and international jazz scenes, equally comfortable and sought-after in the realms of straight-ahead jazz, avant-garde music, and all manner of things in between. Cleaver came of age musically in his hometown of Detroit, He has worked with a wide variety of traditional and cutting-edge jazz artists, including Henry Threadgill, Muhal Richard Abrams, Jimmy Scott, Roscoe Mitchell, Miroslav Vitous, Reggie Workman, Dave Douglas, Craig Taborn and William Parker. His work as a composer and bandleader is comparably diverse, with multiple albums under his own name and as leader or co-leader of ensembles including Farmers by Nature, Uncle June, and Black Host.
