Strickland – drums Elizabeth Pupo Walker – percussion The excitement is mounting as the electrifying Michael Leonhart Orchestra (MLO) prepares to return to our bandstand for an eighth consecutive monthly appearance! Tonight's program will be "The Blue Note Records Suite" featuring the compositions of Kenny Dorham, Eric Dolphy, John Scofield, Bobby Hutcherson, and others. This genre–crossing fifteen–piece ensemble features players from such "name" aggregations as the Dap–Kings, the Mingus Big Band, the Maria Schneider Orchestra, and the "Tonight Show" band (The Roots), performing trumpeter Leonhart's brilliantly imaginative compositions alongside arrangements of songs by Wu–Tang, Duke Ellington, and more. "I realized a long time ago that it's not even about the music you play, it's the spirit with which you approach it. To me that breaks down the barrier between pop, rock, funk, jazz, classical, abstract, musique concrète— it's all expression." (Michael Leonhart)
