The Makanda Project with Mickey Davidson
The Makanda Project is a 13 piece ensemble that includes some of Boston's most renowned jazz musicians. The group, formed in 2005, performs its own arrangements of previously unheard compositions by Boston-born multi-instrumentalist Makanda Ken McIntyre (1931-2011).
Dr. McIntyre had a distinguished career as a performer and educator, yet remained under-recognized. His distinctive compositions are both challenging and accessible, lyrical and provocative.
Leader, arranger, and pianist John Kordalewski studied and performed with him. The other members of the group are Kurtis Rivers, Arni Cheatham, Sean Berry,
Charlie Kohlhase - saxophones; Jerry Sabatini - trumpet; Robert Stringer,
Sarah Politz - trombone; Bill Lowe - bass trombone, tuba;
Diane Richardson - voice; John Kordalewski - piano; Wes Brown - bass;
Warren Smith - drums
Special guest performer is New York dancer Mickey Davidson.
$15 in advance and $20 at the door.
