Archie Shepp and Jason Moran | Jazz on a High Floor in the Afternoon

Oct 28, 2019

Curated by celebrated jazz pianist, composer, and visual artist Jason Moran and Whitney performance curator Adrienne Edwards, Jazz on a High Floor in the Afternoon is a series of live in-gallery performances presented over nine weekends. The series features cross-generational artists performing within Moran’s three mixed-media “set sculptures," each paying homage to an iconic New York jazz venue. 

For this performance, legendary jazz saxophonist, composer, and activist Archie Shepp performs live with Jason Moran. Shepp has recorded with major figures, such as Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane, and was at the forefront of the movement that brought African musical and cultural traditions into freeform jazz. 

As we approach the holiday season, please know we are expecting to be busier than usual with the potential for long entry lines. Please arrive up to 15 minutes before your ticketed time to allow sufficient time for entry, including bag checks and other security measures. We kindly ask at this time that if it is possible to leave strollers and large bags at home please do so. We look forward to welcoming you for your visit.
