Big Bands, New Sounds-Style

From

We’re all about music for big bands on this New Sounds, and that’s certainly not the 1930’s swing bands.  Listen for elements of rock, classical, and minimalism to crop up in music from Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society.  We’ll also hear one or two arrangements of Bjork tunes by Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra.  Plus, there’s also a long-form suite of music from John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble, along with music from the Industrial Jazz Group as well.
