UPDATE: The two solo concerts by Cecil Taylor that were to be co-presented by REDCAT and MOCA on October 24 and 25 have been postponed indefinitely. According to REDCAT, it's possible they will be rescheduled in the near future, but no alternate dates have been determined. If you were one of the few who got tickets, a full refund is available by contacting the REDCAT box office at 213-237-2800.
Don't wait until Blues for Smoke opens at MOCA on the 21st to buy tickets to Cecil Taylor's live performance on the 25th at REDCAT. (This second show was just added after tickets to the first show on the 24th sold out.) Come hear the pianist and poet improvise his legendary modern jazz as the octogenarian makes a rare trip to Los Angeles for a solo show in conjunction with the concurrent blues exhibition. Concertgoers will not only enjoy the artist's unique and memorable sound, but the opportunity to then stroll through the MOCA exhibit with bragging rights.
