About the event
Welcomed by KEXP. Part of the Earshot Jazz Festival
Celebrating the seminal jazz poet, singer, and musician Gil-Scott-Heron. Beginning in the early 1970s, Gil Scott-Heron exploded on the scene with works of powerful social and political commentary reflecting the African American experience and struggle for justice, such as “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” and “We Almost Lost Detroit,” delivered in a style that became a major influence on the development of rap. His work spoke to the times, and inevitably to ours.
