Bye Bye Bartok - classic themes by great symphonic and chamber composers reimagined

Darren Johnston - trumpet
Matt Renzi - woodwinds
Adam Shulman - piano
Eric Vogler - bass

What if Bela Bartok wrote Bye Bye Blackbird? What if Charlie Parker wrote a prelude in E, or Sun Ra, a symphony in C?

I guess we’ll never know, but on January 13 we’re going to do our best to groove and swing and do our thing over themes by Bach, Bartok, Satie, Tchaikovsky and others, followed by a set of our own compositions. Chamber jazz from the heart. Hope to see you there!
