Ghetto Music to benefit Horace Mann School

Eddie Gale Poster

If you’ve had enough film at Cinequest to last you through the week (or the month), consider the alternatives on Friday night this week.

One option is a special concert by San Jose’s “ambassador of jazz” Eddie Gale. Longtime San Jose resident Gale is an established master of free jazz trumpet, best known for his work with Sun Ra. On Friday he’ll present the “remake and beyond” of his 1968 album Ghetto Music. The album is described as “an oral history through song and dance of inner city experiences during the 1960’s Civil Rights Movement”, and it combines jazz, street music, and folk rhythms.

Proceeds from ticket sales will support Horace Mann fifth graders attending Science Camp. More details are available at ARTSopolis and on YouTube. Tickets are being sold by Brown Paper Tickets.

I’m looking forward to this opportunity to see a jazz master in a small theater, and benefit a good cause.

  • What: Benefit concert featuring Eddie Gale
  • Where: Le Petit Trianon, 72 N Fifth St, San Jose
  • When: Friday, March 11; 6 pm
  • How much: $35 per person, benefiting Horace Mann School 5th graders
