Back with almost all new material, the talented Boston trio of trombonist C. Neil Parsons, flutist Hilary Abigana and percussionist Greg Jukes takes the audience on a one-hour trip around the globe, from French Canada to Tuva, in this madcap mashup of music, dance and theatre.
The playful players let an audience member select a country from an inflatable globe; they then launch into a song representing that locale, complete with choreography. Their repertoire includes pop, classical, traditional tunes and original compositions; their routines include playing Chopin while on hoverboards and chasing a wheeled vibraphone around the stage.
Standouts were a dramatic rendition of the Decemberists' The Mariner's Revenge Song, which saw Abigana confront her nemesis in the belly of a whale, a movement from Vaughn Williams' Sinfonia Antartica (which Parsons and Abigana performed while rocking on curved wooden "sails") and a saucy Argentine tango by Astor Piazzolla (with Jukes on accordion).
