Fred Ho Memorial: A Scientific Soul Green Monster Big Band Tribute

“Fred Ho’s style is a genre unto itself, a pioneering fusion of free-jazz and traditional Chinese music that manages to combine truculence and delicacy with such natural ease that it sounds positively organic.”
—DownBeat

The Green Monster Big Band is an 18-piece outfit formed by Fred Ho (The Sweet Science Suite, 2013 Next Wave Festival), the composer—called the “greatest baritone saxophonist of all time” by The New Yorker—who passed away this April. Combining revolutionary politics with African and Asian musical traditions, Ho pioneered a vibrant new form of jazz deployed in service of socialist ideals. Comprising leading jazz luminaries who have performed with the likes of Duke Ellington, Ornette Coleman, and Gil Evans, the Green Monster Big Band pays tribute to Ho’s visionary spirit.
