Performance  |  Reyvolation: Exploring Outer Play-ces : A Tribute to Rey Scott

Saturday, October 12, 2019, 6–9 pm

Tickets available only at 

“Reyvolation: An homage to Rey Scott” Performer, Sun-Ra Arkestra member, composer, musical innovator, and professor of African- American Music. (March 22, 1944 – June 23, 2018)

A gathering of ten musical souls, engendered to paying homage to the ancestral sounds of the great Rey Scott will reimagine Scott’s sound explorations over the course of his career. The ensemble will revisit Scott’s ever-evolving style, delving deep within themselves to seamlessly reconnect jazz to its roots, while consciously and simultaneously working to uproot it. This adventurous collaboration with the Burchfield Penney Art Center will incorporate small group, full ensemble and “call and response” formats, in the spirit of the famed musician, professor, and historian.
