Chris Collins has organized an ambitious Brubeck revival, 'The Gates of Justice' (1969), an hour-long oratorio for choir, brass-and-percussion orchestra, jazz trio and vocal soloists from both the African-American and Jewish traditions. Pianist Jason Moran, a leading-edge voice in contemporary jazz, will anchor the ensemble with his trio, Bandwagon, but also offer a set of civil rights-themed music with bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Nasheet Waits.
