Revive Big Band Clinic
Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
Heralded by the Village Voice for 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 multi-generational ensemble knows no limits as they advance and celebrate the tradition of the big band. Their 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.
