Wed, Sep 17, 2014, 7pm
The Outer Space
295 Treadwell St.
Hamden, CT

Ten years ago the Afro-Semitic Experience recorded a CD, The Days of Awe, that is still one of our most popular and best selling. The rehearsals and the performances to get ready for those recording sessions helped to shape us as a band and it was really a watershed period for us. Most of the music on the album were arrangements based upon my transcriptions of cantorial pieces by the legendary Yossele Rosenblatt.

We will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of that CD on Wednesday, September 17 with a performance at the Outer Space in Hamden, CT. We’ll play the music from that CD plus some music from our newest recording, Jazz Souls on Fire.

That evening we will also celebrate the birthday of our percussionist, Abu Alvin Carter, Sr. who will turn 73 the very next day.

Music begins at 7 pm and we’ll play till about 9 pm or so. There is no admission charge, but we will be passing the hat and selling CDs.

The Outer Space is located at 295 Treadwell Street in Hamden, CT. For more information the web site for the Outer Space is www.theouterspace.net

This should be a memorable night of music and I hope you can make it,
