Heralded by the Village Voice as having some of New York City’s “most electrifying young lions in jazz,” Revive Big Band has a finger on the pulse of today’s emerging progressive sound. Formed in 2010 by trumpeter/composer/arranger Igmar Thomas, a Berklee alumnus, this multigenerational ensemble knows no limits as it advances and celebrates the tradition of the big band. Its repertoire features original compositions and inventive orchestrations of jazz standards and contemporary classics, in never-before-seen, and sometimes never-to-be-seen-again, live performances.

Revive Big Band’s recent shows include Blue Note’s 75th Anniversary, SummerStage Presents, the Art of Cool Festival, the Kennedy Center’s One Mic: Hip-Hop Culture Worldwide Celebration, 2014 WinterJazz Fest, and Brooklyn Jazz with Oliver Lake and Sean Jones; special collaborations with Bilal, Savion Glover, and Pharoahe Monch; and tributes to G.U.R.U and A Tribe Called Quest.

The concert can be heard live in New York on WBGO-FM as part of The Checkout—Live at Berklee series of live broadcasts. It will also be streamed live in HD video that night on NPR Music, WBGO's checkoutjazz.org, and on the websites of many NPR affiliate stations across the country. In the months to come, Revive Big Band's concert will be the subject of NPR Music's new, national radio program, Jazz Night in America, heard on more than 100 NPR affiliate stations and nprmusic.org
