Black Elks Dream
July 26, 2014

Boston Court's Fall Music Series generously sponsored by Elaine Kramer and Al Latham.

Boston Court's Fall Music Series is made possible in part by the Pasadena Arts & Culture Commission and the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division.

Award-winning jazz drummer/composer Matt Slocum has been hailed as "one of his generation's most highly regarded drummers and composers" (JazzPolice) and "one of America's pre-eminent young jazz drummers" (OC Weekly). As a composer, Mr. Slocum is the recent recipient of prestigious grants and commissions from the American Music Center, the Puffin Foundation, New Music USA and Meet the Composer. His ensembles have been featured throughout North America and Europe at venues such as Jazz at Lincoln Center, Yoshi’s and the Blue Note, as well as major festivals in the US and abroad. Frequently referred to as a “musical” drummer, Slocum possesses a uniquely personal voice on the instrument and is a propulsive, melodic and dynamic accompanist and soloist. While he clearly has a deep understanding of the jazz tradition, Slocum's intuitive compositional language is largely non-derivative. His latest recording, "Black Elk's Dream", features 11 new compositions and will be released spring 2014. The project was inspired by the visionary Native American leader Black Elk.

Tickets: $25/$20 for Seniors
