Yesterday Was The Answer
18 Jul 2017, 7:00 PM - 7:30 PM
The band performs selected favorites from some of Ornette Coleman's earliest albums such as Tomorrow is the Question and Shape of Jazz to Come, as well as some not-so-common straight-ahead jazz numbers. Expect unconventional forms and tonalities that will keep you in constant surprise.
Yesterday Was The Answer is the response to Tomorrow Is the Question! by Ornette Coleman, for the sound of Coleman’s concepts became a strong basis for much of the forefront of modern jazz from the 1970s onwards. The band is formed mostly by Esplanade’s Mosaic Jazz Fellows alum, partially as a tribute to Coleman's contributions, and as a farewell project to the band's bassist John Koh for his impending departure to Berklee College of Music.
