About this event

Join us for a special live performance by a generation-spanning trio of jazz luminaries, featuring saxophonists Odean Pope and Immanuel Wilkins and Danish drummer Kresten Osgood.

RUBA Club, Philadelphia

$20 General Admission

21 & Over


This performance celebrates the official US launch of Dangerous Sounds, a podcast about Danish jazz history.


Bringing together three leading lights of modern jazz and bridging a generational divide of nearly 60 years, this performance exemplifies the torch-passing reverence that continues to propel adventurous jazz forward while remaining rooted in its storied tradition. At 82 years of age, Philadelphian Odean Pope remains one of the most vigorous and inspired tenor saxophonists in jazz. He’ll be paired with Upper Darby native Immanuel Wilkins, a rising star who recently celebrated the release of The 7th Hand, his second album via the iconic Blue Note Records, following the widespread acclaim of his Omega debut. These two sax masters, who met last year in a remarkable trio date with Chad Taylor, will be ably accompanied by the great drummer Kresten Osgood, an in-demand member of the European jazz scene and host of the Dangerous Sounds podcast.


Proof of COVID-19 vaccination and the use of properly-fitted masks are required for entry to this program. For more information, please consult Ars Nova Workshop’s current health and safety protocols.


This program is sponsored by WRTI FM, a member-supported, public radio station broadcasting from the campus of Temple University in Philadelphia.


Support for this program has been provided by JazzDanmark, The Danish Ministry of Culture, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Danish Arts Foundation and The Augustinus Foundation.
