The Pittsburgh Collective Featuring Lara Downes, Piano

Performing with The Pittsburgh Collective at ShapeShifter Lab. A little more about the event:

Featuring the east coast (and big band) premier of Long Time Coming, a 
piano concerto commissioned through the Barlow Endowment and written for 
Lara Downes, along with other originals and arrangements by David Sanford

“To call the Pittsburgh Collective a big band is a bit like calling the New 
York Philharmonic an opera outfit…A new kind of fusion is going on in 
[their] music, but also, perhaps, a new kind of analysis, in which the 
origins of jazz – the fusion music of a century ago – are being creatively 
explored” – Paul Griffiths, Miller Theatre
