Search & Restore's Victory Party
Search & Restore are celebrating the success of their recent Kickstarter Project; a pledge to raise $75,000 to spend the next year documenting the NYC new jazz scene, and build a new online home for the community.

And what a celebration this will be!
Darcy James Argue's Secret Society
Darcy James Argue's Secret Society
Darcy James Argue is one of today's most talked-about jazz musicians thanks to the phenomenal critical response to Infernal Machines, his Grammy-nominated debut recording featuring his 18-piece bigband, Secret Society. The record was included on more than 100 best-of-the year lists and won Best Debut honors in the 2009 Village Voice Jazz Critics Poll. Argue and Secret Society topped three categories in the 2010 DownBeat Critics' Poll (Rising Star, Big Band; Rising Star, Composer; and Rising Star, Arranger) and were the recipients of two 2010 Jazz Journalists Association Jazz Awards (Large Ensemble of the Year and Up & Coming Artist of the Year). The group has played high-profile concerts in New York and other US cities, as well as in Europe.
Fight The Big Bull
Fight The Big Bull
A spirited congregation of saxophone, clarinet, trombones, trumpet, guitar, bass and two drummers, Fight the Big Bull is a display of spontaneous emotion filled with powerful significance and baptized in the traditions of the music. Formed in the Fall of 2005 in Richmond, Va out of a handful of highly motivated and inspired recent college graduates FTBB released their debut album, Dying Will Be Easy, to much acclaim on Clean Feed Records in 2008. Following the success of Dying Will Be Easy, FTBB released All is Gladness in the Kingdom, with guest Steven Bernstein in May, 2010 and I Mean to Live Here Still an album with singer/songwriter David Karsten Daniels, an ambitious work lauded by NPR and many others the following month, June 2010. In September 2010 they were commissioned by Duke University to present a concert of new music with their friends Megafaun and guests Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver) and Sharon Van Etten. They are currently preparing their next record and assembling the release of a series of recordings done with K records artist Karl Blau. They have been called "...sonically gigantic", "great, messy, generous music", " the best argument out there for small-market jazz innovation.", and Timeout NY has called them "... one of the more vibrant jazz ensembles we’ve heard in a long while". Proud residents of Richmond, Virginia, the band's music is filled with remnants of spirituals, New Orleans marches, southern soul dance bands, and gospel choirs - all peeking through a kaleidoscope built in the avant-garde tradition A band full of horns and love that you should never ever miss and displaying such a wide palate of emotions that your tin heart cannot escape being moved, Fight the Big Bull is much more than the sum of its parts and begs more than a passing spin on the hi-fi.
MTO Plays Sly Stone w/Dean Bowman, Uri Caine and special guests
MTO Plays Sly Stone w/Dean Bowman, Uri Caine and special guests
MTO Plays Sly Stone is the newest project from Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra. The recording, made possible with a private grant, features legendary P- Funk musical mastermind Bernie Worrell, Vernon Reid, Antony, Dean Bowman, Martha Wainright, Sandra St Victor, Shilpa Ray, and a remix from Bill Laswell. This project is the culmination of a lifelong dream for Bernstein... mixing the classic sound of Hammond B-3 and big band with the musical genius of Sly Stone's compositions... refracted through a unique arranging and improvisatory concept that draws equally from Don Redman, Sun Ra, Duke Ellington, Gil Evans... and Sly.

W/Curtis Fowlkes, Charlie Burnham, Doug Wieselman, Peter Apfelbaum, Erik Lawrence, Matt Munisteri, Ben Allison, Nicole Atkins and Kenny Wolleson.
