About This Event

One of New York’s best new big bands is conducted by Ryan Truesdell. Voted the #1Rising Star Big Band by the Downbeat Critics' Poll, Truesdell's new CD, Centennial Project, delves into the work of Toronto-born composer Gil Evans, who was Miles Davis’s collaborator on albums such as Birth of the Cool, Sketches of Spain, and Porgy & Bess. "The year's most illuminating act of jazz repertory was this bright and meticulous album by Mr. Truesdell ... The playing is impeccable, as is the ensemble blend, underscoring both the composer's genius and the interpreter's clear vision." (The New York Times)
