Latest release on Origin Records is available now!
I'm looking forward to reuniting with George Fludas, Kyle Asche and Pete Benson after a couple of months off from our steady last year at Andy's. We'll be performing on the south side for the Logan Center Third Tuesday Jazz Series. This will be fun, come on down to Hyde Park to check it out!
The CJO returns to the Studebaker Theater with “Sophisticated Giant”: A Tribute to Dexter Gordon, with special guest Joshua Redman. This concert marks the live world premiere of “Sophisticated Giant,” a legendary 1979 recording by the late great tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon performing arrangements by Slide Hampton. The guest artist is the charismatic, internationally acclaimed jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman. Trombonist arranger Slide Hampton will also be on hand for the performance, which is made possible by the collaboration between Hampton and CJO artistic director Jeff Lindberg, who will be transcribing the arrangements from the original Dexter Gordon recording. The second act is sure to entertain with a wide array of classic jazz arrangements for the 12-piece CJO. TICKETS
I'm excited to explore the art of duo playing for this evening of jazz at Chicago's newest jazz club, Winter's. More details to come....
