Six of Saturns: Jon Cleary & Pedro Segundo
- 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm | Thursday May 05, 2022
- Three Keys | Ace Hotel New Orleans
- 600 Carondelet St
Jon Cleary’s work pays obvious homage to the classic Crescent City keyboard repertoire created by such icons as Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Dr. John, and James Booker – while also using it as a launching pad for a style that incorporates such other diverse influences as ’70s soul and R&B, gospel music, funk, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Cuban rhythms, and much more.
Pedro Segundo is the embodiment of dynamism. Equally at home behind 18th-century- style kettle drums and a five-piece drum kit, Pedro makes every object he touches a channel for his incredible musical energy.
Six of Saturns is our annual festival celebration of music, visions and the collaborative spirit of New Orleans. For two weeks each spring, we gather to revel in the beats of the bayou, its musical legacy and commune with stage legends, big band street performers, activists and artists of every feather.
The name Six of Saturns is a mystical tarot to honor Sun Ra’s Trip to Saturn, our numerical place in the universe (600 Carondelet) and the many cosmic connections of Jazz to this land. It’s a fortune that always ends with “yes.”
Six of Saturns happens once a year, so make sure you catch next year’s, and to stay up to date with all Ace New Orleans happenings, subscribe to the A-List.
