w/ The Spirit Music Sextet feat. Meshell Ndegeocello - $40

Mos Def explores jazz with the premiere of Mos Def Big Band. Drawing from material by Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Gil-Scott Heron, Beyonce and original compositions, Mos Def and his big band, with musical direction by percussionist Will Calhoun (Black Jack Johnson/Living Colour) explode the boundaries between jazz, soul & hip-hop. Featuring Will Calhoun (drums), Orrin Evans (piano), John Benitez (bass), Wallace Roney (Trumpet), Antoine Roney (Tenor/Saprano Sax), Robin Eubanks (Trombone) and Don Braden (Alto Sax). "Mos Def has proven himself an explorer as well as an eclectic…further development along these [jazz] lines really would be something to behold--for Mos devotees and open-minded jazz fans alike." -Jazztimes

Mos Def @ 8:45 - 10pm
