I’m happy to say that we’re going to back with the full 18 piece band in June for the Blue Note Jazz Festival at The Highline Ballroom. This will be our first show in the US with the full band in over 3 years (the last time was the Big Band Bonanza at The Bell House in Brooklyn in October 2009). This show has gotten me very excited and reinvigorated about the group, and I’ve started writing a new arrangement on “Earth Intruders,” and I’m hoping I can do this crazy ass tune some arranging justice. I’ve also had some ideas on “Where is the Line With You” and to possibly reorchestrate “Play Dead” from a 12 to 18 piece band version.
Please save the date! Sunday June 9 at The Highline Ballroom. More details to follow!
