11-01-2019 12:00:00 11-01-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Featuring: Freelance and Brandee Younger Electric Quintet | 10PM Harlem based collective Freelance is a band of independent leaders with an expansive sound and encyclopedic knowledge of musical genres that afford them the ability to cross-pollinate styles and manipulate melody to create an aesthetic signature uniquely their own. Influenced by the creative footprints of Mint Condition, Earth Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, Fela Kuti, Radiohead and Robert Glasper, founding leaders, Tim "Smithsoneon" Smith (vocals) and Chad "Ausar the Ambassador" Selph (keyboards) penned the forthcoming full-length debut album, Yes Today. A fearless and versatile talent, contemporary harpist Brandee Younger defies genres and labels as a classically-trained musician playing in the avant-garde tradition of her sonically forward forebears Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane. Ms. Younger delivers a consistently fresh take on the ancient instrument as an educator, curator, performer and leader of the Brandee Younger Quartet. Ms. Younger has produced an impressive body of work since the 2011 debut of her seminal Prelude EP, including Brandee Younger Live @ The Breeding Ground, a breakthrough performance on Bluenote Records and Revive Music's 2015 Supreme Sonacy Vol. 1LP, and the more recent release of her critically-acclaimed 2016 Wax & Wane LP. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=346026 Apollo Apollo
