A stellar roster of Bay Area musicians celebrate Jim Pepper, the jazz fusion pioneer of Kaw and Creek descent who forged a singular synthesis of peyote chants, powwow beats, jazz, rock, and pop (exemplified by his hit “Witchi Tai To”). Co-sponsored by American Indian Movement (AIM) West and curated by José “Dr. Loco” Cuellar, the event includes performances by saxophonists Francis Wong, Hafez Modirzadeh, Melecio Magdaluyo, Dr. Loco, and special guests. The program also celebrates musician/educator/activist/legend Dr. Loco’s 75th birthday! Learn more…
