The Coronet Theatre Jazz Festival: Black Flag - Byron Wallen & Nick Ramm
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
Byron Wallen and Nick Ramm present Black Flag, the music charts the psychological and emotional frontiers of contact between a mother and her son separated by the Atlantic Ocean. It dives into the multi-layered toxic waste caused by global imperialism and colonialism. The creation of lost souls and generations living in socio-economic poverty confined within a mental bubble of paralysis. Explore the shifting balance of power between the urban and rural with a glimpse of light before the Sun.
Byron Wallen is ‘one of the most innovative, exciting and original trumpet players alive’ (Jazzwise Magazine) and Nick Ramm is one of the most highly regarded musicians and has toured USA, Europe and Australia.
The evenings marks the official launch and release of the album and book, Black Flag. We will be selling limited edition copies of the book (including CD’s of the music) before and after the performance.
Byron Wallen: ‘The book is a photographic meditation on my relationship with my mother. My pictures and poems bring you into focus and navigate you through the introspection and tribulations of my formative years emerging into the light of consciousness. Archive family pictures and some favourite images I have shot travelling the world capture the mood and essence of the turmoil, anarchy, beauty and liberation symbolised by the Black Flag’
