Oakland Freedom Jazz Society Presents:


Spirit "is one of the world's preeminent percussionists. He has created his own language. He has synthesized polyrhythmic playing with pan-rhythmic, multiple independent-pulse playing, to reach a level conceptually and technically that few if any can match."

Spirit / Josh Allen / Josh Marshall

This longstanding group continues to explore new regions of sound using all the aforementioned rhythmic devices, and also utilizes tone rows, poly tonality and the overtone series to create new sonic textures.

Spirit: Percussion

Josh Allen: Sax

Josh Marshall: Sax


Spirit / Matt Ingalls
