Darcy James Argue

Born:

A rising bandleader on the New York jazz scene, Darcy James Argue directs Secret Society, a dynamic 18-piece band featuring his original works. The group includes fiery soloists like trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, saxophonist Erica vonKleist, and trombonist Ryan Keberle. Secret Society is a cutting-edge group, in the lineage of the Maria Schneider Orchestra and the John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble, but also evoking the cinematic sweep of indie bands like Tortoise and TV On The Radio, and the rogue spirit of DIY new music groups like Anti-Social Music. Secret Society have performed at a variety of NYC venues including The Jazz Gallery, Makor, Union Hall, Flux Factory, Bowery Poetry Club, and the late CBGB. In January 2008, Argue led the band’s Canadian splinter cell, Secret Society North, in a tour which included a showcase at the prestigious IAJE Conference and performances in Montreal and Toronto

Read "Sam Sadigursky e i suoi Solomon Diaries" reviewed by Gianni Morelenbaum Gualberto


L'estate a New York è sempre stata umida e soffocante. E così l'avvertivano Abraham e Molly Brickman, da poco emigrati dalla Russia. Era il 1908, dopo pochi anni i due coniugi decisero che la metropoli non faceva per loro. Acquistarono un appezzamento di terra a poco prezzo a South Fallsburg, nella contea di Sullivan (detta anche ...

Jihye Lee: Daring Mind

Read "Daring Mind" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Solo un talento eccezionale come Jihye Lee poteva ottenere risultati così brillanti e personali nel campo dell'orchestrazione jazz partendo quasi da zero. Nata a Seoul ed emigrata negli Stati Uniti da adolescente, quando s'iscrisse al Berklee College conosceva pochissimo il linguaggio musicale afro-americano e per niente la sua dimensione orchestrale. Dopo un decennio, studi di perfezionamento ...
