James "Blood" Ulmer

Blues, Jazz
Jazz and guitar legend James Blood Ulmer is among the most distinctive and influential free jazz electric guitarists to emerge in the past four decades. He has worked and recorded with Ornette Coleman, Art Blakey, Joe Henderson, Arthur Blythe, David Murray, Ronald Shannon Jackson, Vernon Reid and George Adams as bandleader and sideman. Ulmer is recognized as a central figure in the post-fusion movements of 1970s and 1980s jazz. Yet within this experimental framework, his guitar playing and songwriting incorporate blues, funk, and rock idioms, making it difficult to categorize his innovative musical forms.

US Premiere of "Scrutiny" Mixed Ability Dance Performance from Karen Peterson and Dancers with Vienna's LizArt Productions

What makes a person or object physically beautiful? How do our ideas of what makes compelling contemporary dance change when people with disabilities are fully included on stage? Together, Miami’s Karen Peterson and Dancers (KPD) and Austria’s LizArt Productions (LAP) dive into these questions, and address the state of the world today, in the U.S. premiere of "Scrutiny: The World Gone Astray." This unusual program of mixed ability or physically integrated dance is called the Miami/Vienna Dance Exchange. Fourteen dancers – seven with disabilities, including those with physical and visual impairments – have worked on "Scrutiny" collaboratively for the past few months. "Scrutiny" is a reflection of the emotional, social and political turbulence in the world today, and includes powerful visuals from Miami-based video artist Maria Lino. The piece is choreographed by Karen Peterson, Juan Maria Seller and Katrina Weaver, workshopped with company members
