13-09-2017 12:00:00 13-09-2017 12:00:00 America/New_York Peggy Lee Septet: Tell Tale | 8:00 PM Tell Tale was a project conceived in 2009 as a musical response to writer / creator David Milch's HBO series, Deadwood. Forming an ensemble of improvisers from Vancouver's deep and varied creative music community, Peggy Lee likened the players to characters in a story and wanted to give them each a chance to voice their individual ideas in unaccompanied solos and in small ensembles within the framework of a musical suite. The seven composed sections of the music imply the arc of a story but they are also intended as launching pads for the players to then make extended improvised statements that take the listener on a journey that is never the same twice. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=244348 Roulette Roulette
