Royal Room owner Wayne Horvitz is both an adventurous musician and a music historian blessed with vast knowledge and great taste. So, there are few better people to organize a festival dedicated to avant-garde jazz in the tradition of John Coltrane, Cecil Taylor, and Ornette Coleman than this versatile keyboardist/composer. On his important agenda are tributes to some of the most innovative artists ever to burn through orthodoxies, including Sonny Sharrock, Henry Threadgill, Muhal Richard Abrams, and a performance of the Art Ensemble of Chicago’s Fanfare for the Warriors.

Tickets for the 3/31 show can be found here.
