New York City's "most electrifying young lions of jazz" (The Village Voice), The Revive Big Band presents a new age of big band. With a contemporary groove housed in a traditional jazz context, the band led by trumpeter Igmar Thomas blends original works flavored with hip-hop, R&B, and sampled jazz recordings. Formed in 2010, the band's universal mission to reignite the big band jazz flame produces surprisingly swinging results. Part of One Mic: Hip-Hop Culture Worldwide.
