Over the past few years, Darcy James Argue has almost single-handedly made the big band cool again; the local composer's harmonically sophisticated works for his 18-piece Secret Society have a dark and foreboding quality, even as they pulse with rock energy. Here, Argue & Co. perform the 40-minute work “Tensile Curves,” penned for the Newport Jaz Festival’s 60th anniversary in 2014.
