We will be roasting our friend & comrade, revolutionary saxophonist Ben Barson, so be sure to bring your best jokes!
Ben Barson is a baritone saxophonist, writer, producer, activist and scientific soul. He has played with diverse cross-sections of leading NYC jazz musicians such as Fred Ho, Arturo O'Farrill, and Frank Lacy, and has performed at prestigious venues such as the Guggenheim Museum, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), and Lincoln Center. Ben does not separate culture from politics and considers cultural work to be essential to the construction of a revolutionary project for the 21st century.
