Steven Hobert Solo Piano: Music of Free Spirit, Resistance & Compassion
March 29, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
$10 admission. $5 with student ID.
Many powers in the world try to discourage open, liberated expression, creative innovation and cultural beauty in favor of the continuation of unequal, oppressive,corporate-driven habits filled with stagnancy, homogenization with cultural numbness and blandness. I wish to encourage and partake in bold expression filled with fresh spirit, spontaneity, compassion for all peoples, deep respect for the Earth, and courage to resist greedy and domineering forces. My musical expression is channeled through improvisatory traditions formed by oppressed peoples such as Jazz (African American) and Flamenco (Romani). I wish to pay my respect to the amazing innovators of the past & present within these traditions and attempt to add something unique from my own heart.
Featuring interpretations of music by Charles Mingus, Stevie Wonder, John Coltrane, Eddie Harris, Billy Taylor and my own compositions.
