Local modern jazz ensemble Luna Madidus will perform live Friday night, Oct. 22 at the airwaves of the Maine Public Broadcasting Network.

The band, led by pianist/composer Tom Luther of Union, will be featured during the program “Friday Night Jazz with Rich Tozier” beginning at 9 p.m. The show will be broadcast over all the Maine affiliates including Camden’s WMEP 90.5 FM, as well as Webcast live on MPBN.net.

Luna Madidus’ repertoire is comprised mostly of original compositions and a few select standards of the modern jazz repertoire, as well as its own arrangements of music from outside the jazz world. In addition to Luther, the quintet includes drummer Jason Dean of Northport, horn player Mike Whitehead of Thomaston, Doug Kennedy of Rockland and Kristen Burkholder of Northport.
