    “One of the few bands around equally at home at the Vision Festival, the Roseland Ballroom, or CBGB.” —Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal

    New England’s premier jazz ensemble, the ten-piece Either/ Orchestra returns with the Boston premiere of The Collected Unconscious, a new suite composed by band founder Russ Gershon. Inspired by the band’s tour of Ethiopia, the music is broad in its scope recalling Ethiopian rhythms alongside the music of Ellington, Mingus, Tito Puente, Sun Ra, and others. Nostalgic, exciting, and challenging, the evening also includes a revival of music written by Nerses Nalbandian, an Armenian expatriate who shaped modern Ethiopian music from his position as music director of the Haile Selassie National Theater during the 1950s and ’60s.
