THE 12 HOUSES LIBERATE THE BIG BAND WITH RECORD RELEASE EVENT
"SOLIDARITY" by Matt Lavelle's 12 Houses Orchestra debuts on September 13. This is not your father's big band...
See and hear the 12 Houses bold brand of free jazz conquer contemporary composition at their CD-release event: it all happens at ShapeShifter Lab, Brooklyn NY, 9/13, 7PM. The band includes special guest soloist Art Baron and features Ras Moshe, Charles Waters, Lee Odom, Tim Stocker, Ras Miguel, Stefanie Griffin, Mary Cherney, Claire De Brunner, Anais Maviel, Gil Selinger, Chris Forbes, Jack De Salvo, Francois Grillot, John Pietaro, Ryan Sawyer, Tom Cabrera and maestro Lavelle out front -plus- guest hip hop artist Brafmatic. "Solidarity", this powerhouse new CD, will be available at a special price.
And if this isn't enough, there will be an opening set by "other world art music" trio Sumari, who will celebrate their eponymous album release which earned a four-star review in "Downbeat" magazine!
In the meantime, satisfy your urge to liberate the big band with this video of the 12 Houses performing at the Dissident Arts Festival just last month. This is a burning kind of swing filled with outside invention and a stellar cast of musicians… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f04jtAcctUk
