DBD 10.5.11 Jazz Mafia Emperor Norton Suite at Yoshi's In Early November

I went to go see their Jazz Hip Hop Symphony #1 a few years back and it was epic.  This is #2.  They debuted it at Stern Grove a few months ago, but I could not attend.  Now is another opportunity for people to see it:

With Brass, Bows & Beats, Adam Theis (principle composer/arranger) has brought together a fearless group of musical innovators at the top of their game delivering a major contribution to the constantly evolving American and global art form known as jazz. Rick Marianetti of The San Francisco Examiner calls Brass, Bows & Beats "one of the most exciting new works of American music in years--a seamless fusion of jazz, funk, hip-hop, electronica, and digital turntable that deserves to be heard world wide."  


Approached with innovation and improvisation, Brass, Bows & Beats was developed over the course of a year with help of a $50,000 grant from The Wallace Alexander Gerbode and William and Flora Hewlett Foundations. This multi-thematic, genre-defying and community-oriented work both embraces and expands on jazz tradition, while sending a positive and pertinent message for our times.

The result is a piece that continues to impress an historical impact that simply cannot be denied; a work, as Gabe Meline of the Sonoma County Bohemian writes, "on par with Miles Davis & Gil Evans' 'Live at Carnegie Hall' or Charles Mingus' 'Epitaph' – visionary in scope, staggering in depth."

Here is a preview.  

I've heard one song that they released and it is the type of song you put on repeat and listen to voer and over and over and over and over.  So, I'm hoping the rest of the symphony is at the same level.  So, you should go and check it out!  Learn more at the Yoshi's link above.
