Violaist Miguel Atwood-Ferguson has developed a reputation for being one of L.A.'s most adventurous young composers, finding himself involved in film and television projects on larger and larger scales. His own music is just as challenging, as he often creates large ensembles that perform chamber, jazz and Latin hybrid works. Tonight's show at Blue Whale features a live laptop, five vocalists, a DJ and no fewer than 11 instrumentalists drawn from the area's finest young talent, including Dennis Hamm, Sara Gazarek, Katisse Buckingham and Walter Smith III. Atwood-Ferguson's shows always offer a unique musical experience, and tonight's effort at Little Tokyo's Blue Whale will be no different.
