“What would you get if you melded a bit of Art Blakey to the imagination of Lester Bowie?” asked Nancy Ann Lee in JazzTimes. “You’d get trumpeter Eddie Allen.” And now you can come hear for yourself as One Breath Rising and 440 Gallery present an afternoon of exciting sound featuring trumpeter and composer Eddie Allen. Joined with the art of Shanee Epstein on exhibit in the gallery, Allen will feature a program from jazz to r&b/pop to latin and everything in between. Brooklyn-based Allen leads several projects which bring together acoustic and electronic instruments as well as working with students through workshops.
440 Gallery is proud to be a partner with One Breath Rising. Now in the fourth season at the gallery, OBR is curated by Darryl Alladice and presents monthly programs that are dedicated to presenting arts in the African American tradition.
