JAZZ RIGHT NOW / NEW REVOLUTION ARTS (CISCO BRADLEY)
Cisco Bradley is a professor of history at the Pratt Institute. Cisco became involved in New York’s free jazz, improvised, and experimental music scenes after moving to the city in 2011. In 2013, he founded www.jazzrightnow.com, where he has published numerous interviews and reviews, and also has built a living archive of the music. He also founded the non-profit organization New Revolution Arts, which began organizing concerts and arts events in 2014.
New Revolution Arts was founded in 2014 to organize events in the free jazz, improvised, and experimental range of music, but has grown to also feature an interdisciplinary array of avant-garde arts including poetry, performance, film, and visual art. The organization keeps its eye focus fixed on the cutting edge and aims to illuminate the work of daring young and emerging artists.
