Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica Album Release Concert
Sunday, November 17th, 7:30pm
Tickets: $15 in advance from Orchestrotica.com, or $20 at the door
Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica comes to Taliesin West on Sunday, November 17th for a special concert event highlighting their new album Where Here Meets There. The Washington Post has called Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica "anything but straightforward." Referencing the exotica of composers ranging from Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich to George Gershwin, Martin Denny, and John Adams, Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica—as a vibraphone quintet—performs global jazz and exotic chamber music with world-music flavors sourced from Asia, the Middle East, the Balkans, and Latin America. Led by multi-percussionist, vibraphonist and composer Brian O’Neill, the group also features bass flute/woodwinds (Geni Skendo), percussion (Shane Shanahan), and acoustic bass (Jason Davis). The quintet focuses on original music written by O'Neill ("a first-rate composer"—Huffington Post) that is highly influenced by his fifteen-year career as a multi-percussionist in symphony orchestras, jazz groups, and world music ensembles leading AllAboutJazz to say, "…if John Zorn is an exotica Picasso, O'Neill is his Georges-Braque counterpart in cubism's transposition to music." The Orchestrotica was named the 2012 "Best World Music Act" in the Boston Phoenix's annual readers' poll.
