Sohrab w. Dr. Cornell West

Sohrab’s Encounter w. Dr. Cornel West @ the Apollo Theater (Backstage)

Sohrab and Dr. Cornel West backstage @ the Apollo Theater in Harlem, May 21, 2016. Yessss…He met this gentleman backstage (he had a performance with MFM endorser and supporter Arturo O’Farrill‘s Afro Latin Orchestra). He gave me the time to introduce myself and him to the MFM movement. With all the many people around us he was focused, listened carefully and showed a lot of interest and respect to what I was saying. He gave me his tel number and asked me to call him and tell him more about MFM and myself. He liked #MakingMusisIsAProfession. and considers to advocate it. He’s also fine that I used a YouTube video clip of his in SoSaLa’s video ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, which isn’t published yet. Thanks Arturo who made this special encounter with Dr. Cornel West possible! Cool music brings cool people together. Right?

Ornette, thanks for being my mirror!

Sohrab Saadat Ladjevardi, who was “a kind of a student” of jazz legend Ornette Coleman, remembered his mentor and friend Ornette late at night on the same day when he passed away, June 11, 2015.

Before midnight he went with his tenor saxophon to his spot at the tunnel of Riverside Park at West 72nd Street in NY. He started playing imagining Ornette around him who was guiding him through his improv. Performimg his version of Ornette’s Harmolodics.

He recorded this improvised music  with his iPhone.
