Welcome to BAM!
We’re so happy that you could join us for our incredible spring season.

These engagements truly epitomize our commitment to bringing adventurous artists, audiences, and ideas together in meaningful and unforgettable ways. It’s a common thread woven throughout this entire season, which connects minds and hearts through dance, theater, visual art, music, programs for young audiences, literary talks, and more.

Every day we see how crucial the arts are to processing and reflecting the world around us, and in turn, how art impacts that world. Shared cultural experiences are more important than ever. When you join us for these incredible experiences, you become an integral part of a community that seeks out and supports visionary artists, and in the process, fosters a global awareness.

As we move forward in our mission, we are excited to welcome back Gina Duncan who returns to BAM as its next president in April. We are overjoyed to begin this new chapter guided by her inspiring vision. The interim presidency has been an enriching experience in so many ways for all of us. During this time, together with a remarkable staff, BAM conceived unique ways to safely return to live performance and reopen its spaces, as well as continue its commitment to present as many of the artists as possible who were postponed due to the pandemic.

Thank you for sharing this extraordinary performance with us and for all that you do to make moments like this possible.

Sincerely,
Nora Ann Wallace, BAM Board Chair
William I. Campbell, Natalia Chefer, and Tim Sebunya, BAM Board Vice Chairs
Jennifer Anglade, Coco Killingsworth, and Elizabeth Moreau, BAM Co-Interim Presidents
About the Show/Artist's Note
When Ornette Coleman's The Shape of Jazz to Come was released in 1959, the music on the album immediately began to reshape the idiom of jazz music—just as its bold title predicted. It also helped to establish Coleman's importance as an American composer beyond category.

In the early 60's, Ornette began to investigate the colors of an orchestra's sonic palette. He taught himself to play violin and trumpet, and he began composing string quartets, woodwind quintets and symphonies. In 1972, Ornette recorded Skies of America with the London Symphony Orchestra.

In the early 2000s, Bang on a Can commissioned Ornette Coleman to compose a new work, Haven’t Been Where I Left, for its flagship, six-piece ensemble, the Bang on a Can All-Stars, who performed the new work live with Ornette and Denardo Coleman on tour. Recently, Denardo approached Bang on a Can with the prospect of making a bigger, extended, and magnified version of Ornette's landmark 1959 album The Shape of Jazz to Come. It was from these discussions that tonight’s project was born.

This performance brings together the Bang on a Can Orchestra, conducted by Awadagin Pratt, and the Denardo Coleman-led Ornette Expressions, an extraordinary lineup of musicians, all of them band-leaders in their own right. On stage tonight you will see and hear special guest James “Blood” Ulmer (electric guitar), and the remarkable soloists Jamaaladeen Tacuma (electric bass), Jason Moran (piano), Lee Odom (alto saxophone), Wallace Roney Jr (trumpet), in the orchestra Tony Falanga (bass), and Denardo Coleman (drums). The Ornette Expressions project is an on-going exploration. Some of the musicians on stage are long-time Ornette collaborators and some have never met him. But the mission is the same: keep moving ahead.

To honor Ornette’s ceaseless creativity, Bang on a Can and BAM have commissioned six composers from across the musical spectrum—David Sanford, Nicole Mitchell, Carman Moore, Craig Harris, Nick Dunston, and Pamela Z—to create new versions of the six compositions introduced on The Shape of Jazz to Come. These new arrangements will simultaneously honor the original album and demonstrate its evergreen influence by taking the individual compositions in new directions.

For this performance, Denardo has added Ornette's “Ramblin’" to the program, which was originally released on Change of the Century in 1960, the year after Shape of Jazz to Come. “In 1957, Sonny Rollins was in Los Angeles recording his Way Out West album for Contemporary Records,” Denardo recalls. “My father was in the midst of recording his very first album, Something Else, also for Contemporary. Kindred spirits, the two met up and formed a lifelong friendship. They would take their horns out to the beach and play together. “Ramblin’" is a tune that reminds me of the West, particularly my father’s hometown of Ft. Worth, Texas, a/k/a Cowtown. I wanted to add something to tonight’s special occasion that combined Rollins & Coleman. I called Mr. Sonny and asked if he would allow me to quote from his tune ‘Come, Gone,’ one of the tracks on Way Out West. ‘Definitely,' was the answer.”

A born boundary-buster, Ornette was one of a kind, but he was also a product of the Civil Rights Movement. It wasn't just jazz he wanted to free up, but all of humankind. The critic Mike Zwerin, writing in 1995, observed that Ornette "gives the impression of being spoken through rather than speaking—a musician from another planet like Bob Dylan, Sun Ra or John Cage.”

Tonight's show is dedicated to Hale Smith, an unsung black pioneer of classical music and a dear friend of Ornette dating back to the 1950s.
Who's Who
Ornette Coleman
Since the late 1950s, when he burst onto the New York jazz scene with his legendary engagement at the Five Spot, Ornette Coleman has been teaching the world new ways of listening to music. In 1958, with the release of his debut album Something Else, it was clear that Coleman had ushered in a new era in jazz history. With core musical partners trumpeter Don Cherry, double bass player Charlie Haden, and drummer Billy Higgins, their music, freed from the prevailing conventions of harmony, rhythm, and melody, transformed the art form. From 1959 through the end of the ‘60s, Coleman released more than twenty critically acclaimed albums on the Atlantic and Blue Note labels, most of which are now recognized as jazz classics.

Intrigued by European classical music as well as jazz, Coleman began studying trumpet and violin, expanding the scope of his repertoire to include string quartets, woodwind quintets, and symphonic works. He recorded his symphony Skies of America with the London Philharmonic Orchestra (Columbia Records) in 1972.

After Coleman’s journeys to villages in Morocco and Nigeria in the 1970s, he created a new sound, one that expressed his trademark musical theory “Harmolodics,” which led to the creation of his electric band Prime Time. In the next decade, more surprises included trendsetting albums such as Song X with guitarist Pat Metheny, and Virgin Beauty featuring the late Grateful Dead leader Jerry Garcia, as well as works on the soundtracks for the films Naked Lunch and Philadelphia.

In 1994, Ornette Coleman was named a MacArthur Fellow and, in 1997, he was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In 2007, Coleman’s recording Sound Grammar was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music. He was recognized with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award [in which year?] and The Shape Of Jazz To Come was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2015, the same year he passed away.
Denardo Coleman (drums, band leader)
Denardo Coleman made his debut on drums at the age of ten on The Empty Foxhole, an album with his father Ornette Coleman and Charlie Haden, released on Blue Note in 1966. He began touring with his father by the mid 1980s, and he also became his manager. Denardo went on to produce several Ornette Coleman recordings, including the historical double recording In All Languages featuring Prime Time along with Ornette Coleman’s groundbreaking original quartet with Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Billy Higgins. Denardo has been involved with many other projects—none more enriching than the recordings he made with his mother Jayne Cortez, one of America's preeminent contemporary poets. There will be a Jayne Cortez Retrospective in 2023 at Amant Museum, Brooklyn. Denardo launched Song X Records and Films; its first release is "Celebrate Ornette,” a box set that includes multiple DVDs, CDs, and LPs, including the last performance by Ornette Coleman.
Nick Dunston (arranger)
Nick Dunston is a Berlin-based acoustic and electroacoustic composer, improviser, and bassist. An “indispensable player on the New York avant-garde" (New York Times), his performances have also spanned a variety of venues and festivals across North America and Europe. He's worked with artists such as Marc Ribot, Ches Smith, Mary Halvorson, Imani Uzuri, Ingrid Laubrock, Tyshawn Sorey, Anna Webber, Amirtha Kidambi, and Vijay Iyer. In addition to three studio albums released under his name, Dunston has also been commissioned by artists and ensembles such as Bang on a Can, JACK Quartet, Ex-Aequo, Bass Players for Black Composers, Johnny Gandelsman, T R O M P O, Maggie Cox, Joanna Mattrey, and Joy Guidry. In 2020 in collaboration with Dogbotic Labs, he co-created “Ear Re-training”, a music composition course on media-bending experimental techniques. He is currently Artist-in-Residence with Wet Ink Ensemble for the 2021–22 season.

Tony Falanga (bass)
Tony Falanga has gained critical acclaim as a bass player of “extraordinary excellence." His extensive professional activities as a solo, chamber and jazz bassist has Mr. Falanga performing throughout the world. Mr. Falanga is a member of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s and a member of the American Classical Orchestra that performs on period instruments. Mr. Falanga was a member of the Ornette Coleman Quartet whose last recording, Sound Grammar, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. As a jazz musician he has performed and recorded with Wynton Marsalis, Joe Lovano, Jim Hall, Andre Previn and Junior Mance. He is also in frequent demand by New York orchestras, ballet companies and Broadway shows. Mr. Falanga’s versatility can also be heard on a dozen recordings he made with the renowned Klezmer clarinetist, Giora Feidman. Mr. Falanga received a B.A. in Music from The Juilliard School where he was awarded the prestigious Lewine Foundation Scholarship. He also holds degrees from the Manhattan School of Music and Berklee College of Music.

Craig Harris (arranger)
When Craig Harris exploded onto the jazz scene in 1976, he brought the entire history of the jazz trombone with him. From the growling gutbucket intensity of early New Orleans music through the refined, articulate improvisation of the modern era set forth by J.J. Johnson, and into the confrontational expressionism of the ’60s avant-garde, Craig handled the total vernacular the way a skilled orator utilizes the spoken word. He has performed with a veritable Who’s Who of progressive jazz’ most important figures—including Sun Ra, Cecil Taylor, Sam Rivers, Abdullah Ibrahim, Jaki Byard, Muhal Richard Abrams, David Murray, Henry Threadgill, Lester Bowie, The WORLD Saxophone Quartet, The Roots, Rakim and the list goes on and on. His own projects display both a unique sense of concept and a total command of the sweeping expanse of musical expression. And it’s those two qualities that have dominated Craig’s past 15 years of activity, bringing him far beyond the confines of the jazz world and into the sphere of multimedia and performance art as composer, performer, conceptualist, curator and artistic director. These include projects like Souls Within the Veil, composed to commemorate the centennial of W.E.B. Du Bois’ “The Souls of Black Folk;" Brown Butterfly, a multi-media work based on the movement of Muhammad Ali with video, dance, and music; and God’s Trombones, based on James Weldon Johnson’s classic collection of poems that refigure inspirational sermons by itinerant Negro preachers.
Nicole Mitchell (arranger)
Nicole Mitchell is an award-winning creative flutist, conceptualist and composer. Having emerged from Chicago’s creative music community, she is the former first woman president of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), a Doris Duke Artist and United States Artist. For over twenty years, Mitchell has utilized her art to create worlds that “bridge the familiar with the unknown,” with her Black Earth Ensemble. She also composes for contemporary ensembles of varied instrumentation and size (from solo to orchestra and big band) while incorporating improvisation and a wide aesthetic expression. As a creative flutist, she’s developed a unique improvisational language which has repeatedly awarded her “Top Flutist of the Year” by Downbeat Magazine Critics Poll and the Jazz Journalists Association from 2010–21. As a composer, she has been commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Music NOW, the French Ministry of Culture, the Fromm Music Foundation, Chamber Music America, International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, the Newport Jazz Festival, the French American Jazz Exchange, the Chicago Jazz Festival, and the Chicago Sinfonietta. Mitchell is a professor and the William S. Dietrich II Chair and Director of Jazz Studies at University of Pittsburgh.
Carman Moore (arranger)
Carman Moore, has composed such works as WILDFIRES AND FIELD SONGS for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, GOSPEL FUSE for the San Francisco Symphony, MADIBA (honoring Nelson Mandela) for the American Composers Orchestra, and MASS FOR THE 21st CENTURY, commissioned by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. In 2010 his CONCERTO FOR ORNETTE was premiered by the New Juilliard Ensemble orchestra. In the 1960s he became the Village Voice’s first new-music critic. He has taught at Yale University, Queens and Brooklyn Colleges, and Carnegie-Mellon University. The Composers Now organization named Moore their Visionary Composer of 2020. In 2013 he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship.

Jason Moran (piano)
Jazz pianist, composer, and artist Jason Moran is the Artistic Director for Jazz at The Kennedy Center. Rolling Stone says “Jason Moran is shaping up to be the most provocative thinker in current jazz." Moran has recorded 16 solo albums with the most recent being The Sound Will Tell You for his own label Yes Records. Within jazz, his multimedia tributes to Thelonious Monk, Fats Waller, and James Reese Europe have shifted the jazz performance paradigm by combining striking images, music and history into masterful evening-length works. Moran was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2010. He scored Ava Duvernay's Selma and The 13th. He has collaborated widely with choreographers Alonzo King, Ronald K. Brown, Jamar Roberts, Kyle Abraham and most recently with the Martha Graham Dance Company. His visual art is in the collections of MoMA, SFMOMA, Whitney Museum, Walker Art Center and Houston's MFA. He currently teaches at the New England Conservatory.
Lee Odom (alto saxophone)

Wallace Roney Jr. (trumpet)
Music has always been a part of Wallace Jr. family pedigree. His father is the renowned trumpeter Wallace Roney Sr. His mother is the universally acclaimed pianist Geri Allen. Growing up in a household full of music, it wasn’t long before Roney Jr. took a serious interest in playing trumpet. His Idols included trumpet giants such as Kenny Dorham, Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, and Lee Morgan. At age 10 after showing enormous interest in playing, and a willingness to study harmony, his father gifted him his very own horn. Since then, Wallace has shared the bandstand with many legends, including Chick Corea, Jimmy Heath, Lenny White, Buster Williams, and the late Ornette Coleman, just to name a few. A graduate of the prestigious Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Wallace Jr. continues to play in numerous venues and performance spaces across the U.S and internationally, and remains a sought-after trumpeter in the New Jersey/New York area.

Kennan Professor of Music at Mount Holyoke College and the director of the David Sanford Big Band.
Jamaaladeen Tacuma (electric bass)
Jamaaladeen has always stretched the mold of what and how a bassist is supposed to play. He has re-defined his instrument's artistic potential. In the 1970's, his creatively free approach to the bass caught the ear of saxophonist Ornette Coleman and Tacuma joined Coleman's Prime Time ensemble. He toured with and performed on some of Coleman's historic recordings: Dancing In Your Head, Body Meta, and Of Human Feelings. In 1983, Tacuma continued to push the musical envelope with Showstopper, his debut album. The latest historical recordings For the Love of Ornette, features Ornette Coleman and Bon Vivant with “Free Form Funky Freqs,” a trio with Vernon Reid and G. Calvin Weston. He has worked with diverse artists: Jeff Beck, Carlos Santana, Marc Ribot, Derek Bailey, Pharoah Sanders, Grover Washington Jr., Peter Murphy, and The Roots, among others.

The Jazz Journalists Association awarded Jamaaladeen the “Philadelphia Jazz Hero” Award in 2021. Since 2015 Jamaaladeen has presented the annual Outsiders Improvised & Creative Music Festival in Philadelphia and continues to tour, produce and record worldwide.
James “Blood” Ulmer (electric guitar)
James “Blood” Ulmer has been a jazz icon for nearly 50 years. His highly individualistic music is an amalgam of the diverse influences he has encountered since, as a child in South Carolina, he taught himself guitar and began singing in a gospel group. As the leader of various small groups over the years, Ulmer has made a substantial international impact and has been described by Down Beat writer Larry Birnbaum as a cross between Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and Mike Bloomfield. International Musician has hailed Ulmer as probably the most innovative, creative guitarist/composer on the scene today. Previously described by Village Voice music critic Greg Tate as, "the missing link between Jimi Hendrix and Wes Montgomery on one hand, between P-Funk and Mississippi Fred McDowell on the other," James “Blood” Ulmer has made a career built on left turns and reinvention. Born and raised during segregation in rural South Carolina, Ulmer's earliest musical roots can be traced back to the Baptist church and the gospel music of which he was raised. In his early 20s, Ulmer went to Pittsburgh where he first began gigging as a professional musician on the Midwest's chitlin' circuit playing with R&B and organ jazz bands. But meeting Ornette Coleman upon moving to New York in the early 1970s was when Ulmer truly found his voice. Working steadily alongside his harmolodic mentor in the fabled New York City downtown loft jazz scene, Ulmer's guitar work blossomed into a one-of-a-kind idiosyncratic style that transcended genre. He released a string of acclaimed albums that remain classics to this day, including Tales of Captain Black, Freelancing, Black Rock, and Odyssey. And now in the 21st century, Ulmer continues to progress as his most recent history finds him being recognized as an elder statesman of the blues. At the core, however, remains the one and only James “Blood” Ulmer.
Pamela Z (arranger)
Pamela Z is a composer/performer and media artist who works primarily with voice, live electronic processing, sampled sound, and video. A pioneer of live digital looping techniques, she processes her voice in real time to create dense, complex sonic layers. Her solo works combine experimental extended vocal techniques, operatic bel canto, found objects, text, digital processing, and wireless MIDI controllers that allow her to manipulate sound with physical gestures. In addition to her solo work, she has been commissioned to compose scores for dance, theatre, film, and chamber ensembles including Kronos Quartet, Eighth Blackbird, the Bang on a Can All Stars, Ethel, and San Francisco Contemporary Music Players. Pamela Z has toured extensively throughout the US, Europe, and Japan. She has performed in numerous festivals including Bang on a Can (New York), Interlink (Japan), Other Minds (San Francisco), La Biennale di Venezia (Italy), Dak’Art (Sénégal) and Pina Bausch Tanztheater Festival (Wuppertal, Germany).
