Musicians participate in photoshoot at The Concord Baptist Church of Christ

On Thursday, June 5, close to 70 musicians from the New York Metropolitan Area were called upon by Bob Myers (Up Over Jazz CafĂ©) and Ahmed Abdullah (Sistas’ Place) to participate in a photo shoot at one of Brooklyn’s oldest churches, The Concord Baptist Church of Christ. The musicians who showed up (among them, Roland Alexander, Cecil Bridgewater, Phil Bingham, Bob Cunningham, Billy Harper, Craig Harris, John Hicks, Harold Ousley, Jimmy Owens, Bill Saxton, Charles Tolliver, Reggie Workman, Kiane Zawdi, etc.,) represent some of the finest veterans of a particular era of self-determination in the artform known as Jazz.
