Chicago Jazz Orchestra: Tribute to Dexter Gordon featuring JOSHUA REDMAN

  • Studebaker Theater 410 South Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL, 60605 United States (map)

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.
