The band known as “The Octet” is a cooperative of eight musical friends coming together to play through the entire history of Jazz with a big band and small group sensibility. The Octet is not technically a big band and neither is it a small group, but hearing the band the listener will feel as if they are listening to either-or. That is the beauty of the The Octet and what makes it a unique musical unit.
The Octet will play original arrangements created by various members of the band. The arrangements will cover classics composed by Dizzy Gillespie, Chick Corea, Cedar Walton, Gerry Mulligan, Wayne Shorter, etc. as well as original compositions from members of the band.
