Under the direction of artistic director and esteemed trumpeter Orbert Davis, the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic dazzles audiences with fresh riffs on jazz masterpieces. During the band’s tribute to Miles Davis, the Orbert Davis Sextet performs a rearrangement of the jazz great's milestone album, Kind of Blue, a work noted for its sensual horns, moody tempo, and liner notes written by Cookie Monster. In the second act, the 19-piece Chicago Jazz Philharmonic Chamber Ensemble assembles onstage to revisit Kind of Blue's immediate successor, Sketches of Spain. With a specially recruited lineup of strings and brass, the ensemble explores the record's Latin-flavored nuances, conjuring images of spectral gypsies and matadors wearing Ray-Bans. During both performances, audiences' vehicles can enjoy the majesty of floating quarter notes from cozy, free parking spots.
