The Atheist Coalition has asked us to cross promote their monthly meeting:
This Thursday, May 16 at 5:45, we will be hosting a concert presented by one of the world's leading jazz saxophonists, Gilad Atzmon. His album, Exile, was named the BBC Jazz Album of the Year in 2003.
Gilad was born in Israel and fought in Lebanon in 1982. He was so disgruntled with Israeli tactics that he began writing about the state of Jews in regards to Israel. He lives in London today and is not allowed in Israel because of his writing. His concerts are on the theme of exile and he plays for a few minutes, then narrates and continues playing.
This is probably the most profound event the Atheist Coalition has ever put on. Gilad is well-known throughout the world for both his music and his writing. He also plays with the Blockheads, a British rock group that had several hits in the 1970s and 1980s as Ian Drury and the Blockheads. Ian died in 1998, but the group still tours.
