Here’s Giovanni Russonello in the NY Times, 12.31.2018: “Quietly, beneath the radar of even most jazz lovers, the big band has been charging back. For a long time, the large ensemble has seemed a clunky ves­tige of American music’s past — outmoded since bebop supplanted swing in the 1950s — but a bumper crop of enterprising, conservatory–trained composers sees it differently: as a vessel of grandiose possibil­ity.” The 2016 album Real Enemies by Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society was nominated for both a GRAMMY Award nominated for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album and for Jazz Album of the Year (Group) in Canada’s JUNO Awards. Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society, writes Giovanni Russonello, “is now renowned in the jazz world. At 43, he has become a mentor to many of today’s young big–band composers…‘It seems like no matter what, the possibilities of writing for big band are so musically irre­sistible that people keep finding a way to make it work,’ Mr. Argue said. ‘Which is really inspiring.’”

    Darcy James Argue's Secret Society

    Jazz

    Vancouver–born, Brooklyn–based composer/bandleader Darcy James Argue and his 18–piece ensemble are in the never–ending process of reimagining what a 21st–century big band can sound like. Along the way, this nonpareil aggregation has garnered countless awards and a thick folio of rave reviews, like Richard Gehr in The Village Voice praising “maximalist music of impressive complexity and immense entertainment value, in your face and then in your head.” The Secret Society topped the Big Band cate­gory in the 2015 DownBeat Critics Poll, propelled by live performances celebrated for their “slashing fury and awesome full–ensemble precision” (The New York City Jazz Record), “brilliant soundscapes” (Toronto Globe and Mail) and “gorgeous musical details, maneuvers and transformations” (Ottawa Citizen). Jazz Standard is thrilled to welcome back Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society for one very special night – make your reservations now!
