As Duke Ellington said, “Art is dangerous. It is one of the attractions: when it ceases to be dangerous you don’t want it.” On March 28th at 7pm at The Bitter End, CompCord Big Band runs amok on a program featuring over a dozen perilous premieres. Adhering to the original Big Band concept of brief arrangements presented in quick tandem, while expanding the repertory with all new compositions for the 21st Century, CompCord Big Band features many iconic instrumentalists, as well as up-and-coming stars: Gerson Galante, Michiyo Suzuki, Daniel Schnyder, Scott Hoefling, Stefan Zeniuk – saxophones; Franz Hackl, Jonathan Finlayson, Peter Oswald, Jack Walrath – trumpets; John Clark – horn; Mike Seltzer, Jason Jackson – trombones; David Taylor – bass trombone; Carlton Holmes – piano; Laurence Goldman – bass; Joe Abba – drums; with Melanie Mitrano – voice; Sebastian Pritsker – voice; Bian Suzuki-Wolf – clarinet; and Gene Pritsker – conductor. Compositions by Aaron Alter, John Clark, Dan Cooper, Gerson Galante, Franz Hackl, Carlton Holmes, Peter Melnick, Melanie Mitrano, Ginka Mizuki, Alon Nechushtan, Gene Pritsker, Sebastian Pritsker, Zinovy Pritsker, Daniel Schnyder, Dave Soldier, David Taylor, and Stefan Zeniuk.
Staying in rotation for 34 years in NYC is a rare feat. In the case of a new music presenting organization, it requires not only diligence and cognizance of achievements of the past, but also an ethic of keeping one’s ear to the ground for emerging stylistic and technological developments, as well as talented new composers on the scene. Composers Concordance strives to present contemporary music in innovative ways, with an emphasis on thematic programming. Directors Gene Pritsker and Dan Cooper co-curate the programs, and lead the CompCord Ensemble, Chamber Orchestra, String Orchestra, and Big Band. Associate Directors are Milica Paranosic, Peter Jarvis, Svjetlana Bukvich, and Debra Kaye. Composers Concordance has also created a Naxos-distributed record label: Composers Concordance Records, co-directed by Peter Jarvis. Composers Concordance’s overriding vision is to promote contemporary music, composers, and new works as a rightful and respected part of society. Good music, performed and recorded well, pushing the boundaries of sound and composition.
“An unwavering force in giving composers exposure through concert bookings and its own record label, the intrepid new-music organization Composers Concordance”  -The Brooklyn Rail. “For the past 30 years, Composers Concordance has been a booster for local composers, through both its concerts across the city and a record label.”  -The Wall Street Journal. “Enterprising new music organization” -The New York Times. “The Composers Concordance folks are unpredictable and at times refreshingly irreverent in a reverent sort of way….ingenious fun” -Classical-Modern Music Review. “Edgy… boisterous… demanding our attention” -San Diego Story. “These men and women are creating exciting music with elements of jazz, world music and many experimental techniques blended with equal parts classical tradition and playing techniques.” -Asbury Park Press. “There is considerable evidence to show that Composers Concordance may be one of the most exciting labels in American contemporary music.”   -JazzdaGama.

Selected Reviews:
Downbeat Magazine: “Reeves arrives at his sound – modern metric ideas, sweetly stacked harmonies that move in surprising directions, atypical musical alliances – by utilizing the full scope of his playing experience.”  (Suzanne Lorge)
London Jazz News: “His new release, Without a Trace, contains originals and standards, colourfully orchestrated, with an intimate, club-like ambience. These pieces really are ‘composed’…there is always a feeling of forward travel.” (Nigel Waddington)
New York City Jazz Record: “This is an excellent example of both modern big band music and the arranging of Reeves.” (Scott Yanow)
Jazz Times: “Scott Reeves Jazz Orchestra is a wonder…hot compositions…a sizzling band…an assemblage of brilliant artists…the music is exciting, even thrilling.”
(Travis Rogers)

All About Jazz: “Reeves is a resourceful writer with…a keen ear for melody, harmony and counterpoint, his arrangements scrupulously burnished and invariably engaging.” (Jack Bowers)
Stereophile: “Within the highly specialized, invaluable, economically endangered discipline of composing and arranging for large jazz ensemble, a new badass has arrived. Reeves’s touch is always deft and light, his designs traced in fine lines.” (Thomas Conrad)
