Maria Schneider Orchestra
The composer-bandleader's annual Thanksgiving run at this Danny Meyer establishment acquires some foodie synergy with the local premiere of "The Thompson Fields," her Americana-tinged tribute to the environmentally attuned farmers of her native Minnesota. Schneider specializes in buoyant big-band music with classical aspirations, and she's ably aided and abetted by the likes of Frank Kimbrough (piano), Donny McCaslin (tenor sax), and Alex Morris (flugelhorn).
