Celestial Ascension Unending

A large and impressive cast—including poets Amiri Baraka and Steve Dalachinsky, drummers Lou Grassi and Ches Smith, reedists Charles Gayle and Peter Apfelbaum, and percussionists Adam Rudolph and Warren Smith—gathers to honor the memory of the late Danish saxophone hero John Tchicai, a key presence on the free-jazz scene from the style's early-’60s inception to his passing in October 2012.
