15-04-2019 12:00:00 16-04-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Michael Leonhart Orchestra | 7:30 PM-9:30 PM For their once a month residency, Jazz Standard welcomes back to our stage the Michael Leonhart Orchestra – simply one of the most thrilling and accomplished big bands on today's jazz scene. Under the direction of trumpeter/composer Michael Leonhart, the MLO includes expert players from the Village Vanguard Orchestra, the Maria Schneider Orchestra, the Dap–Kings, Menahan Street Band, and Antibalas. "If I can give someone goosebumps, if I can make all the fatigue, anxiety and stuffy reality of the day go away and take people to a place where you're experiencing a higher–level joy…that's an in­credible thing to see. Sometimes when I turn around and I see that the entire audience is moving because they just can't help it, that's an incredible thing. I'm looking at people and they really look 'in the mo­ment.' They're not concerned about what happened earlier or what is going to happen afterwards. That's a great place to be at. Whether that's achieved through melody rhythm, harmony, dissonance, counterpoint, that's secondary. That transcendental kind of thing is what matters."
