Share this event:


Brooklyn-based composer Darcy James Argue, a five-time winner of the Downbeat Critics Poll, is credited with "making big band cool again" (Time Out New York). He leads the Cornish Contemporary Big Band in a concert of his compositions.

Active in New York with his 18-piece ensemble Secret Society since 2005, Vancouver native Darcy James Argue first gained international recognition with his widely acclaimed 2009 debut, "Infernal Machines" (New Amsterdam Records), which appeared on over 100 best-of-the-year lists, earned Grammy and Juno nominations, and quickly made him one of the most talked-about musicians in jazz. In addition to appearances at venues ranging from jazz and rock clubs to such prestigious theaters as the Bimhuis, Merkin Hall, and the Kennedy Center, the group has also performed at the Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver Jazz Festivals, the Ecstatic Music Festival, the London Jazz Festival, the Moers Festival, New York's Winter Jazzfest, the Newport Jazz Festival, and Brazil's BMW Jazz Festival. Argue premiered his latest project, Brooklyn Babylon, an innovative multimedia collaboration with graphic artist Danijel Zezelj, over the course of four nights at Brooklyn Academy of Music's Next Wave Festival in 2011, and has recorded the music for a 2013 release.

Argue's awards include the BMI Jazz Composers' Workshop Charlie Parker Composition Prize and SOCAN's Hagood Hardy Award. He has received commissions from the Danish Radio Big Band, the Hard Rubber Orchestra, the West Point Jazz Knights, the Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos, the Jazz Gallery, the Manhattan New Music Project, and the Jerome Foundation, as well as grants and fellowships from New Music USA, the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the MacDowell Colony.
