The Pillow Project's SECOND SATURDAYS
are back with special guests from Paris and NYC
The Pillow Project's monthly signature jazz-happenings are back! November features special guest jazz legends Sabir Mateen and Moe Seager, as well as new spontaneous compositions and directed performances by The Pillow Project...
Originally from Philadelphia and currently NYC, Sabir Mateen has been a world renowned avant guard/free-jazz artist (Alto & Tenor Saxophones, Flute, Piccolo, Bb & Alto Clarinets, Composer, Arranger, Conductor, Poet) and has performed with the greats such as Cecil Taylor, William Parker Ensembles, Alan Silva, Wilber Morris, Jemeel Moondoc, Charles Downs, among many others. Mateen has performed in Europe, Japan, and Africa, and is also involved in Collective bands such as TEST, The Downtown Horns, The East 3rd St. Ensemble, as well as leading The Sabir Mateen Ensemble, Omni-Sound, Trio Sabir, and Juxtapositions. Sabir Mateen was recently introduced to The Pillow Project at a free-jazz session in Paris.
Paris legend and East Liberty native, Moe Seager has been working with The Pillow Project both abroad and in Pittsburgh on collaborating his live poetry and the company's physical jazz. Moe is a writer and musician known for his provocative poetry and crowd pleasing jazz performances, and has published 3 books of poetry, several short stories and some 20 stage plays produced in the U.S. and France. A Golden Quill award winner for journalism (1988) and a human rights award recipient (1989) Seager's career led him to Paris in 1991 when the French Ministry of Culture published his epic length poem, "Rio Escondido". Moe is also a commentator for RT TV, Paris.
Also debuting is the Pittsburgh premiere of "The Fifth in Jazz": A new conceptual performance directed by Pearlann Porter with projection design by Mike Cooper.
