December’s Jazz Encounter features pianist, composer Fabian Almazan & a presentation of new jazz work accompanied by visuals from visual artist, Andrew Scott.

WDNA Radio and Live Arts Miami co-present a special Jazz Encounters concert with support from South Arts.

Cuban-born and Miami-bred jazz pianist Fabian Almazan returns home to premiere “We Call This Home,” a poignant jazz work based on his research in “sacrifice zones,” or areas that bear the brunt of environmental harm due to pollution, factories and economic disinvestment. Almazan is said to be “one of the great young talents of his generation” by jazz great Terrence Blanchard and has performed alongside esteemed artists such as Gretchen Parlato, Paquito D’Rivera, Christian Scott, Dave Brubeck, David Sanchez, Stefon Harris, Kendrick Scott, and Christian McBride, among others.

This world premiere concert of new music is accompanied by rich visuals created by visual artist Andrew Scott.

The concert is followed by a discussion with Fabian Almazan and students with the Jazz Education Community Coalition, under the direction of Nicole Yarling, perform an original composition, inspired by the connection between environmental justice and arts education. 

Students! Be sure to score one of the limited free student tickets.
