Secret Society @ Newport Jazz Festival, 2 August 2019


Always a pleasure to be back at Newport!

We’ll be giving the U.S. premiere of “Ebonite,” commissioned by the Hard Rubber Orchestra, alongside other music we haven’t previously performed at the festival. We are also excited to welcome two first-time co-conspirators to the Secret Society rhythm section: bassist Emma Dayhuff and drummer Rudy Royston.

My co-conspirators and I have been summoned to fortify the ramparts at Jazz Standard. Our vigil begins this very eve, and we will take up our positions anew the following night. We’ll be performing a broad spectrum of Secret Society music, including some unrecorded rarities. We hope you’ll join our ranks for this epic two-night encounter.

Tuesday, April 23 & Wednesday April 24 — sets at 7:30 & 9:30 PM
