Darcy James Argue's Secret Society
Two weeks from tomorrow, Darcy James Argue's Secret Society and special guest Bob Brookmeyer will perform on the Harbor Stage at CareFusion Jazz Festival Newport.

“Mr. Wein asked if I might like to invite my compositional mentor, Bob Brookmeyer, to play a tune with us at Newport," recalls Argue, who just topped the Big Band Rising Star, Composer Rising Star and Arranger Rising Star categories in the DownBeat Critics Poll. “I ran the idea by Bob and he accepted, so now I have to contend with the frankly terrifying prospect of writing a piece that features him on valve trombone, to be premiered at the festival."

This will be Argue's third appearance at a major festival this summer following Secret Society's two-set show at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola during CareFusion Jazz Festival New York in June and his collaboration with the Cologne Contemporary Jazz Orchestra at the North Sea Jazz Festival in July.

Argue and Secret Society will kick-off their fall performance schedule at Iridium Jazz Club on September 22nd.
