Maria Schneider Orchestra


Newmark Theatre (map) Downtown
Fri., Feb. 17, 7 p.m. 2017 21+


For some unearthly reason, Maria Schneider's long-running jazz orchestra has never played in our city before. That alone would be excuse enough to attend their performance at the Newmark Theatre. But the real reason to witness this show is to get swept away by the depth and grandeur of Schneider's compositions and the all-star lineup that plays them. This version of the Orchestra arrives on the heels of the Grammy-winning LP The Thompson Fields, a magisterial work that features some of Schneider's most angular and accessible compositions, and features top notch players like trombonist Ryan Keberle, saxophonist Scott Robinson, and her secret weapon, pianist Frank Kimbrough.
