Taking the history of the big band forward, this concert explores the startling music of the mid-1940s to 1960s, when arrangers began to incorporate the revolutionary musical discoveries of bebop and cool jazz into writing for large ensembles. This concert ranges across Neil Hefti’s music for Count Basie’s second great band, the astonishing bebop charts of Dizzy Gillespie and the cooler sounds of Gerry Mulligan. Also featured are charts by Charles Mingus, Ernie Wilkins, and later works by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn.
