Legendary jazz bassist Reggie Workman will bring his sextet to the IU Bloomington campus March 27-28 for a FREE master class and performance hosted by the IU AAAMC as part of a special event, Black Music Icons Live. The visit comes just before Workman will be honored with an NEA Jazz Masters Fellowship Award on April 2, the nation’s highest honor in jazz. Workman was a member of the John Coltrane Quartet in the early 1960s and went on to perform with such jazz icons as Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers, Wayne Shorter, and Thelonious Monk. As a professor at The New School College of Performing Arts (COPA), Workman teaches classes such as Futuristic Concepts in Music and the John Coltrane Ensemble. Workman is an iconic national treasure in Black music. For further information go to: https://provost.indiana.edu/statements/workman-sextet/
