Organic Nation Listening Club is an evening of music performance and storytelling by jazz and world music composer David Ornette Cherry with a host of influential Portland jazz musicians, around the theme WE HEAR TOO FAST.
Cherry will take the audience into a deep listening space of images and emotional landscapes that evoke his childhood of growing up in Watts, surrounded by “free jazz” innovators, funk garage bands and musical legends. The cast of musicians will integrate their musical histories, their stories and how all of them landed in Portland. The music, humor, warmth, and political awareness from this group with “multi-culti” origins are sure to create a positive, spiritually uplifting and innovative evening of jazz and performance.
