The Vision Festival is a celebration of boundless improvised art. Now in its 23rd year, this festival of music, dance, poetry, and visual art is heralded as “one of New York’s most essential art events” (New York Times).  Legendary and emerging stars representing the free jazz, experimental, and avant-garde communities will perform 30 sets over six nights.

Opening night celebrates Dave Burrell for his Lifetime of Achievement, featuring the pianist in performance with musical associates spanning his 50+ year career.
Burrell will premiere a new work, Variations: Full Blown Rhapsody, inspired by the music and poetry of the Harlem Renaissance. An historic reunion between Burrell and saxophonist Archie Shepp, known for their collaborations in the 60s and 70s, will revisit the songbooks of these two free music titans in a co-led quartet. Finally, Burrell will lead an improvising quintet featuring the free jazz aesthetic he has become known for.
