Thurman Barker Quintet with Adegoke Steve Colson and Iqua Colson

April 22, 2023 @ 7:00 pm EDT


Versatile drummer and percussionist Thurman Barker has performed with countless singers and artists from the worlds of classical, pop, jazz, and those that defy categorization. His ensemble performs excerpts from three of his orchestral scores — South Side Suite, Pandemic Fever, and Mr. Speed-str — on a special double bill with “musical power couple” (The New York Times) Adegoke Steve Colson (a 2019 ACF | connect participant) and Iqua Colson, and their longtime collaborators Chico Freeman and Douglas R. Ewart (a 2012 ACF McKnight Fellow and innova Recordings artist). The Colsons’ vast body of work focuses on many facets of the human experience, illuminating social issues while taking listeners inside the aesthetics of art.
