modern jazz

It will be a unique experience to hear the veteran pianist and singer of the radically advanced 60ís Chicago jazz scene perform her own music on the pipe organ of the Middle-Pori Church.

Though born in Arkansas, Amina Claudine Myers grew up in Texas, around Dallas and Forth Worth. After graduating from Arkansasí Philander Smith College on music education and concert music, Myers relocated to Chicago, where she studied at Roosevelt University, taught music and played with the likes of saxists Sonny Stitt and Gene Ammons. Joining the famous black music organization AACM, she focused on composing and arranging, and recorded her first jazz album in 1969 with Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre.

Mid-70ís saw her moving to New York, where she composed steadily, often for Off-Broadway theatre productions. In the 80ís she joined Charlie Hadenís Liberation Music Orchestra. Myers has recorded many fine albums on her own name, while also collaborating with Richard Muhal Abrams, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Arthur Blythe, Bill Laswell and many other jazz-luminaries.
