An Evening with David Murray
Tenor saxophone giant David Murray comes home with his guitarist son Mingus in tow to round out a local quartet called Class Struggle.  Murray, perhaps the worlds most prolific recording jazz artist, has revolutionized the 70s-80s avant-garde and expanded the musics reach throughout the African Diaspora.  Equally innovative on bass clarinet, Murray has recorded with various quartet and octet combos, poets Amiri Baraka, Ntozake Shange and Ishmael Reed, and is a founding member of the World Saxophone Quartet.

Performing at the EastSide Cultural Center on Saturday, April 9th David Murray & Class Struggle come to East Oakland with the intent to perform the music in Black communities to retain its historic and soulful roots.  As sponsoring hosts, EastSide Arts Alliance recognizes that cultural gentrification  the mainstream commercializing of the music  is a key component of community gentrification.  The annual Malcolm X JazzArts Festival and efforts to establish a Black Cultural Zone in Oakland are part of the resistance against the onslaught of gentrification, while over a quarter of the Black community has been uprooted in just the past decade. Maintaining the music and arts in our schools and independently-run cultural centers is critical to the survival and livelihood of healthy empowered families and neighborhoods.

Join us to welcome David Murray & Class Struggle to maintain the tradition of the music and grassroots cultural expression as part of Black community Self-Determination!
