Views and Brews
Twice a month the Cactus Cafe hosts KUT’s Views and Brews.
Views and Brews is a free space where we invite the community in to explore a wide range of subjects and ideas. Already we’ve talked about Race In America, Spinoza Today, The Psychology of Civic Engagement, The Future of Theater, Time and much more.
Our goal is to engage with the community to share thoughts, inspire new perspectives, and give everyone access to new ideas, art, literature, music and imagination.

Ornette Coleman and the Art of Entrepreneurship
Join us for the next Views and Brews as we present an evening of enriching music and conversation exploring the enduring influence of the saxophonist and innovator, Ornette Coleman.
Ornette Coleman was a musical trailblazer. Always curious and creative, he inspired a movement of new expression, questioning established practices as he sharpened even the most cutting edge of emotive performance.
What do we do with inherited forms? How do we distinguish ourselves and coalesce our vision in the scrutiny and judgment of public taste? What value is there in earning the respect of our colleagues? How far are we willing to go to live our truth? What is genius and what is jive?
Sponsored by KUT radio, Rabbi and Jazz Historian Neil Blumofe in conversation with Rebecca McInroy.
Featuring: Michael Malone, saxophone; David Young, trumpet; Red Young, piano; Roscoe Beck, bass; Brannen Temple, drums. This is a free event (donations welcome) -- please arrive early to guarantee a seat.
