Philadelphia Jazz Project Presents Byard Lancaster: Celebration of Life

  • Germantown Branch 6128 Germantown Avenue Philadelphia, PA, 19144 United States

The Philadelphia Jazz Project presents a tribute to saxophonist Byard Lancaster. Byard Lancaster was a Philadelphia-born, alto saxophonist and teacher blessed with great talent and known for the distinctive cry of his solos. Categorized as an avant-garde jazz artist, he was just as comfortable performing Blues, Soul or Straight-ahead Jazz. His international celebrity status via his work in Europe, the Caribbean and Africa made him a natural ambassador for the Philly Jazz scene. Members of the Philadelphia jazz scene will pay tribute to Byard's legacy. Tickets are $10 and are available online here.
