Add to Calendar 08-08-2013 08-08-2013 15 Dance Heginbotham with the Raymond Scott Orchestrette / Butler, Bernstein & The Hot 9 Dance Heginbotham creates highly structured, technically rigorous, and theatrical choreography, frequently set to the music of contemporary composers. Along with signature pieces Twins and Blown Away, Dance Heginbotham will present a world premiere of Manhattan Research, a new work based on the music of midcentury maverick Raymond Scott. Best known for his Loony Tunes ditties, the composer, bandleader, and musical inventor's spirit -- leaping from zany to sultry -- lives on thanks to the Raymond Scott Orchestrette, whose dynamic performance of pieces like "Powerhouse" will provide the spark for Dance Heginbotham's trademark vigor and humor. Athletic, meticulously rhythmic movement will run alongside cool, witty nods to the subject matter in Scott's melodies, instrumentation, and song titles. A premier exponent of the New Orleans jazz and blues piano traditions, the adventurous virtuoso Henry Butler teams up with trumpeter and crack arranger Steven Bernstein (Sex Mob, Millennial Territory Orchestra) in the newly formed Hot 9. Together, they dive into the roots of jazz and its predecessors, using Butler's percussive yet elegant playing and improvisation to power a fresh, brash sound. With master drummer Herlin Riley (Dr. John, Wynton Marsalis), they reframe classics by Bessie Smith and Fats Waller, alongside Butler's originals, walking the line between jazz's deep regional pedigree and the gleefully exploratory. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=136828 Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts true DD/MM/YYYY
