Musician Jaimeo Brown, performing with his ensemble, Transcendence, fuses jazz, hip-hop, and blues. Presented in confluence with Allison Janae Hamilton’s exhibition, Pitch, the evening will include Brown’s provocative piece Work Songs — which samples the sounds and music of unknown laborers. With songs of the jailhouse, the coal mine, and the gandy dancer, Brown argues that through music we can transcend oppression and the traditional constraints of creativity. Preferred ticket buyers are invited to a gallery tour and recital at 3pm.
