PDX Jazz and Soul’D Out Present Harriet Tubman – Early Show

with Brandon Ross, Melvin Gibbs & JT Lewis

November 2 | 8:00 pm
The Jack London Revue, 529 SW 4th Ave
Portland, OR 97204 United States

Harriet Tubman formed in 1998 when drummer J.T. Lewis, guitarist Brandon Ross, and bassist Melvin Gibbs came together to start a band. Harriet Tubman is named after the heroic African-American slave who risked her life to escape from slavery and helped more than 300 others to do the same. Deeply inspired by the ideals of freedom, Harriet Tubman’s music plumbs the soul’s depths for liberated musical expression. Harriet Tubman’s music is a continuation of the process of contextual and musical innovation exhibited by such diverse artists as Ornette Coleman, Jimi Hendrix, Derrick May, Art Ensemble of Chicago and Parliment-Funkadelic. Recontextualizing musical technology to create innovative compositional and cultural spaces is an important part of the African-American cultural tradition.

PDX Jazz and Soul’D Out Present: Vernon Reid’s Band of Gypsys Revisited Band -Early Show

November 3 | 9:00 pm
The Jack London Revue, 529 SW 4th Ave
Portland, OR 97204 United States

Recorded live at The Fillmore East in New York City N.Y. on December 31st, 1969 & January 1st, 1970, the Band of Gypsys debut recording consisted of six tracks released to the public on March 25th, 1970 – close to fifty years ago.
