New Music | BT ALC Big Band

Since the their formation in 2011, the BT ALC Big Band, led by trombonist Brian Thomas and trumpeter Alex Lee-Clark, has gained a reputation for hard grooving original compositions featuring the most talented jazz and funk musicians in Boston. The BT ALC Big Band draws from the big band traditions of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Thad Jones and infuses music from funk legends like James Brown, Parliament Funkadelic, and The Meters, creating an undeniably unique sound, Big Band Funk.

We’ve seen Brian in the mix with Ropeadope alum Otis Grove and Akashic Record, and now we are stoked to welcome the BT ALC Big Band with their new release The Search For Peace, due out here on May 17th. Stay tuned for some selections coming out as singles so y’all can get a little taste of Big Band Funk.
