David Sanford’s Pittsburgh Collective
Sunday 13th Mar, 2016
Albright-Knox Art Gallery1285 Elmwood Avenue Buffalo, NY 14222
David Sanford is one of the most interesting American composers of our time. The recipient of numerous awards, including the Prix di Rome, the Guggenheim Fellowship, commissions from the Fromm and Koussevitzky Foundations, and most recently a Radcliffe Fellowship, Sanford makes music that straddles the line between jazz and modern classical, channeling influences from Charles Mingus, Arnold Schöenberg, James Brown, and countless others. The twenty-piece unit will also feature four generations of Maynard Ferguson alumni—Bobby Militello, Bruce Johnstone, Hugh Ragin, Andy Weinzler—as well as a cast of Sanford’s core musicians from New York, Boston, and Buffalo.
