Bobby Zankel

You don't want to miss what plans to be a wonderful evening on The Bridge - THREE truly special guests: master Trumpeter and epic composer Hannibal Lokumbe visits during the first hour to speak about the world premiere of Can You Hear God Crying? at the Kimmel Center, as well as his participation in a much-anticipated John Coltrane celebration.

WRTI's J. Michael Harrison interviews composer, arranger, clarinetist, cellist, and jazz pianist Muhal Richard Abrams about his collaboration with Bobby Zankel's Warriors of the Wonderful Sound. The project features work commissioned by Abrams in the "Free Jazz" medium; his work compresses both contemporary and traditional ideas into lean, elegant pieces. You can hear the interview in the video below.
