For pure musical adventure that crosses geographical borders and bridges the divide between “world” music and improvisational jazz, this assemblage is not to be missed. These three musical innovators will be performing together as a unit for the first time on September 16th and much of the music will unfold out of the ether right in front of your eyes and ears.
However, they are not strangers to one another. For nearly 20 years, Sheldon Brown was an innovative force behind Ian Dogole’s bands, both as a performer and composer. Brown has appeared on a number of Ian’s recordings, including, Ionospheres, Night Harvest, Convergence, Crossroads and Ian Dogole & Hemispheres in Concert (DVD). Kash Killion and Ian have been performing together for the last 5 years as part of Mariah Parker’s Indo Latin Jazz Ensemble and appear on her latest CD release, Indo Latin Jazz Live in Concert.
Sheldon Brown performed internationally as a featured soloist with Cuban pianist Omar Sosa, and recorded on five of Sosaʼs albums. In addition to his own ensemble, the Sheldon Brown Group, he continues to perform with many groups in the San Francisco Bay Area, including Electric Squeezebox Orchestra, Clarinet Thing, Darren Johnston Quintet, Club Foot Orchestra and countless more.

Kash has played extensively with musical icons such as B.B. King, Cecil Taylor, John Zorn, Julius Hemphill, Reggie Workman and so many more.
