It is with a heavy heart that we announce our beloved and brilliant Geri Allen passed away in the afternoon of June 27, 2017. In a career that spanned more than 35 years, Geri gifted us with her impeccable playing, composing, arranging and empowering young musicians everywhere by acknowledging the past and bringing the music forward with her innovative projects and her educational acumen.
Here is her aptly titled composition, "Unconditional Love" performed with Esperanza Spalding and Terri Lyne Carrington. Thank you Geri Allen for sharing unconditionally, your beautiful gift.
