Sound Observatory New Orleans presents:

Harriet Tubman

6OS Tubman

Three Keys monthly series with SONO, The Shape of Jazz to Come, kicks off a special three-day edition for Six of Saturns 2018 during Jazz Fest presenting jazz innovators Harriet Tubman doing a free jazz set for their New Orleans debut show. 

Formed in 1998, Harriet Tubman features drummer J.T. Lewis, guitarist Brandon Ross, and bassist Melvin Gibbs. Harriet Tubman incorporates electronic jazz, rock, and funk into a sound they call “Open Music.”

From NPR: “This is black music at its best, a metaphor for the pervasive conflicts that embody the black experience. Heard throughout the song are the dissonances between pain and hope, light and darkness, denial and confirmation. Its simplicity is challenged — but not overpowered — by a dense improvisational construct built on the trust of musicians who do it very well.” 

Tonight will be Harriet Tubman's only performance during New Orleans Jazz Fest week 2018. 

New Orleans vinylist Ben Shive spins genre-expanding DJ sets to open and close. 

Admission is FREE with RSVP, however, space it limited and prioritized for those that RSVP in advance. Entry is first-come, first-serve, with non-RSVP guests admitted while space lasts. Advance RSVP on this page is strongly suggested. 

See the show and stay the night. Book a room with rate code TRICENTENNIAL for 15% off weekdays and 10% off weekends.
