When saxophonist Azar Lawrence first burst on to the jazz scene in the '70s he was hailed by many as the second coming of John Coltrane. "Azar Lawrence burns like a bright, hot flame at the altar of his muse. Given the ever-present fire danger in the Southland, a fire truck should remain on call when Lawrence blows. " raves AllAboutJazz. BMCC Tribeca PAC’s Lost Jazz Shrines series is dedicated to bringing legendary New York City jazz clubs back into the consciousness of the world with a thorough remembrance and celebration. Our opening night concert will be a tribute to the late Rashied Ali. Saxophonist Azar Lawrence performed there frequently, and Rashied Ali played the drums on his next release.
