Max Reinhardt with a Darcy James Argue mixtape

In London Jazz Festival week, Max Reinhardt presents a mixtape from Brooklyn-based jazz composer and bandleader Darcy James Argue.

As the 2017 EFG London Jazz Festival continues, Max Reinhardt presents a mixtape from Brooklyn-based jazz composer and bandleader Darcy James Argue.

18-piece band Secret Society is the main vehicle for Argue's music, earning acclaim as one of the most forward-thinking large ensembles currently working in jazz and improvised music.

His writing is intricate and at times complex, while retaining the power and drive of the classic big bands, and recent pieces have incorporated multimedia elements and explored contemporary American politics.

His artistic approach reflects a wide listening habit, which he explores in this selection of music from his collection.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.
