, musician and painter (Montgomery, Alabama- b. 1949), and based in Columbus Ohio, is both a prolific visual artist, and a lifelong devotee and practitioner of free jazz. This event will combine both practices through an exhibition of paintings, solo performances on the alto saxophone and cello, and projection of visual imagery. Musically, Razzaq comes from the Cleveland scene of the late 1960’s that produced the Ayler Brothers, and cellist Abdul Wadud, amongst others. His work combines elements of ecstatic free jazz with periods of more reflective sounds. Travel to Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, and study of African rhythms through hand drumming, has contributed to his sound through a consciousness of global musical culture.
