Today’s featured video is from the Tony Wilson 6tet, from a February 2015 performance at Vancouver, Canada’s Pyatt Hall. It’s part of his “A Day’s Life” multimedia project. For this performance, the music is accompanied by projection, dance and narration. It’s a two hour performance broken into two sets. I’ve embedded the first set just below, and provide a link to watch the second set on Youtube (just below the video).
The album related to this project, titled A Day’s Life, was the This Is Jazz Today Album of the Week. Read more about it (and listen to some audio) by following this LINK.
Now, here’s that video…
Your video personnel: Tony Wilson (guitar), Peggy Lee (cello), Russell Scholberg (double bass), Skye Brooks (drums), JP Carter (trumpet) and Jesse Zubot (violin).
And here’s a LINK to the second set of the performance.
I hope your week is off to a great start!
