Dasan Ahanu and Tai Allen Present The Originals: Gil Scott-Heron & Oscar Brown, Jr.

When: Sat., Feb. 21, 8 & 10 p.m. 2015

In one of its more imaginative pieces of programming, downtown Durham’s jazz cafe pairs two spoken-word gladiators, Dasan Ahanu and Tai Allen, with the works of two masters of poetry in the black jazz aesthetic, Gil Scott-Heron and Oscar Brown Jr. Apart from an appreciation of this undervalued lyrical form, what could go wrong with this cross-generational clash of music made with words? —Eric Tullis

Price: $15
