  The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said this about Jazz. “Jazz speaks for life. The Blues tell the story of life’s difficulties, and if you think for a moment, you will realize that they take the hardest realities of life and put them into music, only to come out with some new hope or sense of triumph”. On Tuesday, January 18 @ 12 am (that’s Monday into Tuesday), as a tribute to legendary journalist/lecturer/musician/broadcaster Greg Tate, From the Soundboard will focus on the ensemble known as Burnt Sugar.
 

Burnt Sugar is a New York based improv unit currently comprising over two dozen members that was first established in 1999 by Greg Tate, the Village Voice writer and co-founder of the Black Rock Coalition. It was described by David Fricke of Rolling Stone magazine as ‘a neo-tribal thang, aspiring to the condition of all that is molten, glacial, spatial, telepathic. A multiracial jam army that freestyles with cool telekinesis between the lustrous menace of Miles Davis’ On The Corner, the slash-and-om of 1970s King Crimson, and Jimi Hendrix moonwalk across side three of Electric Ladyland.’ [Adam Sieff – London Jazz News]
