Featuring a multigenerational cadre of artists who have consistently blurred the lines between forms such as trombonist Ku-umba Frank Lacy, critically acclaimed pianist Marc Cary, Thelonious Monk Competition winner Ben Williams, Revive/Blue Note recording artist drummer Otis Brown III, and saxophonist Marcus Strickland, the Revive Big Band is more than just a big band. It’s a movement. It symbolizes the voice of a new generation of musicians and audiences that hunger for a more expansive notion of jazz – one that exists in real time, reflecting a dynamic synthesis of their influences and experiences all while leaning towards the future. Join arranger, composer, and trumpeter Igmar Thomas as he leads the Revive Big Band at the Highline Ballroom as part of a preview of this year’s upcoming Summerstage series.
