The Afro-Semitic Experience at the Hartford Festival of Jazz

The Afro-Semitic Experience had a great time playing at the Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz on July 22. We premiered pieces from our new work, "Jazz Souls on Fire", including arrangements of Pharoah Saunders' and Leon Thomas' "The Creator Has a Master Plan," and John Coltrane's "Wise One." Abu Alvin Carter took ill and could not be with us, but the legendary Connecticut percussionist Asher Delerme stepped up and did a great job of filling in at the last minute. Here are some photos from the concert.
