Marty Isenberg: "Wes Anderson Project"
This show is part of the Pangea Jazz Festival which runs from August 23 through August 31, 2019.
Wes Anderson has created a cinematic style that is deeply intimate and immersive. His musical scores often feel like a mixtape you would give to someone you have feelings for. Its through these films that bassist Marty Isenberg was introduced to some of the music that would become most influential to him: bands like the Velvet Underground, Nick Drake, Elliot Smith, and the Zombies.
The Wes Anderson Project explores the repertoire of music in Anderson's films, rearranged for jazz instrumentation. This repertoire takes on a life of its own in the imaginative mind of Mr. Isenberg.
Bassist Marty Isenberg has performed on Broadway, at Radio City Music Hall, hosts the podcast "Between the Gig", and is the founder of The Clinton Hill Music School. He began his career leading the 16-piece orchestra MIBB. For the following decade of his career, Marty embraced being a freelance musician and sideman.
The Wes Anderson Project is the first band that Marty has led since MIBB and is a real return to form of his compositional and arranging style. Having honed and developed his skills as a performer/sideman, Mr. Isenberg leads a band comprised of some of the top jazz musicians in New York City.

Downtown's intimate supper-club Pangea is the ultimate in alt, playing home to some of the best in alt cabaret. The New York Times recently called it "a bohemian oasis not unlike the fabled Max's Kansas City from days gone by."
