Painted Bride Art Center

Steve Prince

Composer Hannibal Lokumbe continues to take his music into the city's communities on June 15th, 16th, and 17th, highlighting the roles music can play in fostering forgiveness and healing. This is his second extended visit to Philadelphia, as part of his three-year, composer-in-residency with The Philadelphia Orchestra.

Jazz orchestras are normally thought of as vehicles for standards, or dinner jazz. But, as WRTI’s Maureen Malloy reports, Philadelphia’s Fresh Cut Orchestra is anything but standard.

WRTI's J. Michael Harrison recently moderated a very special panel that explored music known as "The New Thing" - from the free jazz movement of the 1950s and 1960s, led by innovators such as Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, and Sun Ra.
