African Rhythms

When: Sun., May 24, 6 p.m. 2015

Pianist Randy Weston grew up surrounded by some of the greatest musicians in jazz. But it is his deep connection to Africa that inspired his personal style of music. “The music of Africa is music that is totally in tune with the universe and the earth and the sky,” he says. “This music is totally in touch with Mother Nature. Mother Nature is always improvising — it's cold, it's hot, it rains, it snows ... this music is in touch with the universe.”
