DOUBLE WINNER IN 2013 DOWNBEAT CRITICS' POLL: BEST BIG BAND, BEST ARRANGER
Trailblazer Darcy James Argue brings his 18-piece big band Secret Society to Houston in one of this celebrated ensemble’s rare ventures beyond New York. Argue is among today’s most talked-about jazz musicians, thanks to the phenomenal critical response to Infernal Machines, his Grammy-nominated debut recording featuring Secret Society, which was included on more than 100 best-of-the year lists and won Best Debut honors in the prestigious Village Voice Jazz Critics Poll. Secret Society performs the music from its most recent project, Brooklyn Babylon, in its entirety.
