The craft of disco composition in the 1970s was serious business. String arrangements that required sizeable ensembles are the legacy of MFSB, Love Unlimited Orchestra and Washington's own Van McCoy, to name a few. This musical tradition is being carried on by Escort, a 17-piece disco orchestra from Brooklyn, where many older styles are being re-imagined these days. New York has been buzzing about Escort for a few years, and the group is finally making its way to Washington. With Nila Kay.
