It's September of 1962 and three great band leaders: Charles Mingus, Max Roach and Duke Ellington gathered in the studio to embark on a musical adventure and make their mark on the quickly developing post-bop modern jazz movement. The results are an intriguing mesh of voices - a tense conversation between instruments, sometimes bordering on argument, all the while showcasing the brilliance of each individual musician. Denver pianist and composer Tom Amend and drummer Brian Claxton pay homage to Ellington, Mingus and Roach by curating a double drummer quartet for a 6 week run at Nocturne. Matt Smiley (bass), Paul Romaine (drummer 2 - 9/20, 9/27, 10/11, 10/18), Jim White (drummer 2 -10/4), Alejandro CastaƱo (drummer 2 - 10/25) [Organizer's description]
