gil-scott-herons-birthday-jazz-cafe-london-march-2018

Critical poet and black power activist, Gil Scott Heron is one of the most impactful spoken-word artists in history. Known for his sharp yet witty tongue, he mixed blues and jazz with poetry to forcefully enliven a disengaged people and ridicule the role of mainstream media and spotlighted the reality of racial issues to reach a wide and varied audience.

Jazz Cafe will be holding a celebration on the 31st March to mark what would have been Heron’s 69th birthday. Anthony Joseph, musical poet and novelist, will be hosting the night. Signed by Strut Records, Joseph will be paying tribute to the master with his Caribbean jazz re-imaginings of Heron’s legacy. The night will see a number of performances from various artists (like James Massiah and Brother Portrait) each sharing their own interpretations in homage to the great.

This will be a heartfelt and spirited nod to the boss of ‘bluesology’. Revel in the power of art to influence change and reflect on what messages remain relevant.
