DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, 22-time Grammy Award-winner, and keyboard virtuoso, Chick Corea, joins Grammy Award-winning pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba! With solos & duets, it is a must-see concert if there ever was one!
The 3-time Grammy Award-winning Branford Marsalis Quartet will be joined by guest-vocalist and Grammy Award-winner Kurt Elling in a singular collaboration of musical forces. The tight-knit working band featuring Marsalis on saxophones, Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass, and Justin Faulkner on drums rarely invites other musicians into the folds of their nearly telepathically cohesive unit, and Elling’s deep jazz vocabulary, technical versatility, and outstanding intonation will enable the band to perform a variety of material in new ways. Opening for the Quartet will be jazz vocalist, composer and Miami native, Carmen Lundy. Hailed by The Evening Standard as “a genuine jazz singer”.
When the music of Ma Rainey meets Miles Davis, expect the realms of blues and jazz to be out of this world.

Joined by the Henry Mancini Institute Big Band they will take Blues Journey from Ma Rainey to Miles Davis.
