Chico Freeman: special guest with The Makanda Project
The Makanda Project, highly regarded for its dedication to exploring and performing the previously unrecorded compositions of Boston native Makanda Ken McIntyre, has also been applauded for undertaking the work of other renowned jazz masters.
With funding made possible by a grant from The Boston Foundation, The Makanda Project has invited Chico Freeman, one of the worlds leading tenor saxophonists, to join them as they embark on presenting a program consisting entirely of selections from Freemans extensive catalog of compositions. These new arrangements are to be the first big band adaptations of his work.
For the Arlington concert, only the second time The Makanda Project has performed in the Metro West area, the following musicians will be joining Freeman: Kurtis Rivers (alto sax), Arni Cheatham (alto sax), Paavo Carey (soprano sax, clarinet), Sean Berry (tenor sax), Charlie Kohlhase (baritone sax), Jerry Sabatini (trumpet), Haneef Nelson (trumpet), Ku-umba Frank Lacy (trombone), Tyler Bonilla (trombone), Bill Lowe (bass trombone, tuba), John Kordalewski (piano), Avery Sharpe (bass), Yoron Israel (drums).
The Arlington High Jazz Band, led by Tino DAgostino, will open the evenings concert.
