Mandell Presents: Brent White Jazz Ensemble - Broken Toy

March 1, 2023 | 7PM | Mandell Theater

Broken Toy is a suite of jazz children’s music dedicated to all those who suffered emotional damage caused by losing a parent to incarceration. The arc of the compositions collected here both express and deconstruct the innocence, joy, and safety that children find in music. Brent White articulates his aesthetic sense, much of which issues from personal experience, in the traditions and historically responsive veins that flood into the recent 2021 recording, Broken Toy. As suggested by the title, the composition takes up the work of repairing what is precious in a child’s life. The music reveals Brent White’s constructive method in the madness that flows from the prison industry, from violence, and from poverty into our families and communities. Ultimately, the Broken Toy suite, offers children and adults alike a lesson on how to listen and heal.

Audiences of all ages invited to attend.
