Andy Clausen's (Re)Birth of the Cool
*** Tickets available at the door ***
New York-based composer and trombonist Andy Clausen joins former tongue-in-cheek cross-town rival Riley Mulherkar (now classmates at Juilliard) to perform the complete Birth of the Cool suite with a Seattle nonet, including French hornist Tom Varner and alto saxophonist Mark Taylor.
To bring a faithful rendition of the classic 1949-1950 recordings, Clausen and trumpeter Mulherkar compiled parts from various sources and transcribed and edited scores for the complete Birth of the Cool suite.
"This music needs to be heard," Clausen says.
