Darcy James Argue's Secret Society Perform Duke Ellington-Inspired 'Tensile Curves' at Newport Jazz Festival 2014
The centerpiece, of course, being "Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue"--accompanied by saxophonist Paul Gonsalves.
Brooklyn's Darcy James Argue is considered something of a Duke scholar, himself, and his big band, too, is a veteran of Newport. Thus, he decided to present his 35-minute piece inspired by "Diminuendo" on August 5 (as well as some other previously unrecorded works that Secret Society presented at the main stage on August 1).
The set list includes:
"All In (For Laurie Frink)"
"Codebreaker (For Alan Turing)"
"Last Waltz For Levon"
You can listen to a live recording of the event over here.
