A major arranger and big band leader during the past 15 years, Darcy James Argue has long had an original writing style.

While he studied with Bob Brookmeyer and his arrangements have some of the picturesque qualities of Maria Schneider’s, Argue gives big band jazz his own flavor.

He has led the 18-piece Secret Society since 2005.

Argue conducts his orchestra on “In Transit” which features trumpeter David Smith flying above the dense ensembles.
