Monday, February 9, 2014 | 7:00 p.m. | Featuring Anwar Marshall
To satisfy the universal need for deep grooves and sweet sounds, the Music Department at the Parkway Central Library is collaborating with the Philadelphia Jazz Project and the Producers’ Guild to bring you The Mysterious Travelers Concert Series. Through free, monthly concerts running through April 2015, audiences will hear from veterans as well as up-and-coming musicians who are shaping the future sounds of Philadelphia. You heard it here first at your Free Library of Improvisation!
Anwar Marshall is a drummer and co-leader of a ten-piece ensemble called the Fresh Cut Orchestra who plays regularly semi-regularly at the Painted Bride Art Center and the Kimmel Center. In addition, he has collaborated with musicians such as Dave Douglas, Orrin Evens, Tim Warfield, Duane Eubanks, Jaleel Shaw, and Robert Glasper, among others.
Philadelphia Jazz Project (PJP) works to inspire a network to support, promote, archive and celebrate the diverse elements within the Philadelphia jazz community, with the larger goal of connecting to the global community. PJP is a sponsored project of the Painted Bride Art Center, with funding provided by the Wyncote Foundation.
The Producer’s Guild’s mission is to ensure that the appreciation and enthusiasm for the rich cultural heritage of African American Arts continues to thrive in Philadelphia, especially Black Classical Music, commonly known as JAZZ.
