SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Free Spirits Sunday, Prince Charles, 3pm
Contrary to what the name might imply, drinks are not on the house at Prince Charles on Sunday. Rather, the day-long celebration is a tribute to the free spirits among us in the musical realm.
JAW Family and the Steve Reid Foundation join forces for the event, a 12-hour musical extravaganza that pays tribute to the late jazz drummer Steve Reid. Proceeds from Free Spirits will go to two causes. First, musician Arthur Blythe, a friend of Reid, will receive money to help with his battle against Parkinson’s. Second, money will be donated to help the recently burned down Festsaal Kreuzberg get back on its feet and rebuild.
The party kicks off with soulfood and records for sale. Later, listen to live sets from jazz groups Astral Travel and the Horace Tapscott Tribute Ensemble. Then DJs Alex Barck (Jazzanova), Floating Points, Four Tet, and Gilles Peterson will keep the music going until 3am. Natalye Childress
