Ars Nova Workshop is thrilled to announce a late addition to our Spring season, presenting Steve Coleman & Five Elements for two performances at Johnny Brenda’s preceding their weeklong run at New York’s historic Village Vanguard.
While ANW previously announced a packed Spring line-up featuring such acclaimed artists as Allison Miller, Rhys Chatham, Peter Brözmann, Joe McPhee and Tord Gustavsen, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to add a pair of concerts by one of the most exciting and acclaimed ensembles in modern jazz.
