2015 marks 40 years since Lonnie Liston Smith released his seminal cosmic jazz album ‘Expansions’. Celebrating that anniversary with a one-off at a suitably cosmic venue, perennial tastemaker Gilles Peterson joins Smith for a conversation on the sofa before a special performance.
Expect tales from Smith about the modern jazz movement, his experiences with Sun Ra in the ‘60s, the afrofuturist movement and more infused with Peterson’s aficionado knowledge of the scene before Smith performs with a full live band, accompanied by Peterson on the decks.
Line Up: Lonnie Liston Smith Gilles Peterson Terri Walker The Cosmic Echoes
Presented by Red Bull Music Academy.
