Jazz artists have long responded to our racial and political climate. But pianist Fabian Almazan may be part of a newer trend: artists poised to address the challenges of climate change. Heâ€™s formed Biophilia Records, a Harlem-based label that unites artists who are passionate about the environment.
In this salon, Almazan performs his music for string quartet, then joins a discussion with label partner and sustainability specialist Jessica Wu. Theyâ€™re joined by host Larry Blumenfeld and trumpeter Adam Oâ€™Farrill, whoâ€™s new project focuses on environmental disaster.
