Oliver Lake 70th Birthday Weekend Takes Over New York’s Jazz Standard

Share This:

Legendary saxophonist Oliver Lake will celebrate his 70th birthday next weekend at the Jazz Standard with a flurry of performances in New York, including a trio, a quartet, and a 17-piece big band. Performances at the club begin on September 13 and last through September 16.

An accomplished poet, painter and performance artist, Lake has published a book of poetry entitled Life Dance, has exhibited and sold a number of his unique painted-sticks at the Montclair Art Museum, and has toured the country with his one-man performance piece, Matador of 1st and 1st. But it’s his extraordinary talents as composer, saxophonist, flautist and bandleader that have brought him world-renown.
