The Microscopic Septet

May 02, 2013 10:00 PM - 11:59 PM

The music of The Microscopic Septet was the sound of jazz in 21st Century America:  all of it, from Ellington to Ayler, bebop to Zorn, Dixieland  to experimental,  captured in a microcosm.  It distills the essence of jazz as a popular  music into a sound that swings,  a music that is intelligent, sometimes smart-aleck,  and always good clean fun.

The Micros are preparing to record their first CD of newly written material since the 80s. Be there when they try it out at Spectrum NYC, music that Downbeat Magazine called “seminal, brilliant post-modern jazz.”

“Packed with soaring melodies, jubilant riffs, joyous shout choruses, infectious rhythms and incisive solos . . . the most fun one can have listening to contemporary jazz.” All About Jazz
