13. Lublin Jazz Festival | Steve Coleman And Five Elements (US)

Steve Coleman, an outstanding saxophonist, composer, visionary of contemporary music, one of the creators of the M-Base movement will perform as part of the 13th Lublin Jazz Festival. His work and ideas have a strong impact on the modern face of jazz. Steve Coleman is an advocate of improvised African Americans, a great philosopher of rhythm and black culture.

Coleman performed and recorded with such artists as Sam Rivers, Cecil Taylor, Cassandra Wilson, Ravi Coltrane, Dave Holland, David Murray or The Roots. Steve Coleman’s spontaneous and pre-conceived compositional techniques are largely influenced by the great African-American spontaneous composers. For Steve, music is not a separate discipline from any other activity created by humans. He believes that as a form of vibration and energy, music can be conceived as a holistic part of the entire vibratory spectrum from micro to macro. Steve also believes that music has its edjangoxoteric and esoteric forms, and it was from this perspective that many musical masters produced their work. Five Elements was formed to continue this tradition using their personalized form of musical expression.
