Over years of playing in various configurations and settings, saxophonist Sarah Hughes, drummer Kelton Norris, and bassist Stephen Arnold have developed a natural and intimate style of group improvisation that is inspired by Ornette Coleman and Wayne Shorter’s quartet but always has both feet firmly planted in the present. Nothing is scripted, and anything resembling composition occurs naturally and spontaneously. The trio’s first recording is due to be released in 2021.
Saxophonist & trumpeter, Clarence Ward III, pours heart and complex emotion into the every fiber of his sound. From the minute you hear the crisp, agile wail of his trumpet, the playful sincerity of his sax or his big and luscious flugel horn sound, you are frozen, caught in a snare of hope and honesty until he decides he has said his piece. Standing as a major influencer in the development of Baltimore's present jazz sound, Ward's lion heart positions him on the vaguard, reinforcing jazz music as a vital voice for these mordern times.
UMBC's Humanities Forum presents DaMaris B. Hill, Associate Professor of Creative Writing, English, and African American Studies, University of Kentucky, who will read from and speak about her poetry collection, A Bound Woman Is a Dangerous Thing, a narrative-in-verse that bears witness to American women of color burdened by incarceration. In A Bound Woman Is a Dangerous Thing, Hill presents bitter, unflinching history that artfully captures the personas of these captivating, bound yet unbridled African-American women.
