Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra - "Relativity Suite"
Thursday, November 2, 2017
8:00 p.m.



On Thursday, November 2, Steven Bernstein’s Millennial Territory Orchestra will present its version of Don Cherry’s rarely performed “Relativity Suite.” Cherry, who was instrumental in the development of CMS, composed it in 1970 to feature a mix of brass, saxophones, strings, and Indian and Chinese instruments. 

“This instrumentation crossover perfectly blends with MTO, and the expansive nature of the suite (and Cherry’s musical conception) allows for the band to bring their own sound and rhythm into the composition, while remaining committed to its essence,” said Bernstein. The second half of the concert will feature pieces drawn from MTO’s repertoire, ranging from 1920’s Harlem big band pioneer Cecil Scott, to Prince and whatever else the moment may bring.

Charlie Burnham, violin; Clark Gayton, trombone; Doug Wieselman, Peter Apfelbaum and Erik Lawrence on reeds; Matt Munisteri guitar and vocals; Ben Allison, bass; Ben Perowsky drums; Steven Bernstein, leader/slide trumpet
