2015 HOT TIMES KATE SCHULTE TRIBUTE


ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE

Edward "Kidd" Jordan
Hamiet Bluiett

Kate thought Bluiett's bari sax was almost as beautiful as he. She saw him first with the World Saxophone Quartet at the NOLA JazzFest in 1992.

Kate loved the Olde Towne East neighborhood and its Hot Times Festival. She worked in the neighborhood for over two decades and she volunteered at the festival every year, until she was no longer able. After her untimely death in 2011, Hot Times recognized her dedication with a tribute concert. Jazz legends D.D. Jackson and Edward “Kidd” Jordan came to Columbus in 2012 and joined with The Jazz Poetry Ensemble and members of the New Basics Brass Band to celebrate her life and her involvement in the community. The Arts Foundation of Olde Towne decided to make this tribute a yearly event. In 2013, Kidd Jordan returned with his son, jazz great Marlon Jordan, for another inspiring program. In 2014, Kidd was named artist-in-residence emeritus. He came to Columbus for Hot Times and performed a program of Columbus native Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s music with The Jazz Poetry Ensemble, and Kris Keith and Eddie Bayard also on saxophones. In 2015, Kidd was joined by his old friend World Saxophone Quartet great, baritone player Hamiet Bluiett.

2016 marks the 5th annual Tribute. A special performance is planned to mark this occasion. All previous artists-in-residence will return, joined by alto saxophonist Oliver Lake, friend and frequent collaborator with them all.

Thanks to the Greater Columbus Arts Council, the Ohio Alliance of Arts Educators, the Puffin Foundation West, WCBE, and jazzcolumbus.com for their support of the tribute.
