Mark Inouye, the San Francisco Symphony’s principal trumpeter, has been described by critics as “maybe the best performer on his instrument in the world.” He’ll no doubt make a strong case for that title when he brings his trio to the Davies Hall stage to jam with the SFS, under the baton of conductor Edwin Outwater. They’re set to play Great American Songbook standards like “My Funny Valentine,” as well as a jazz rendition of Modest Mussorgsky’s 1874 suite Pictures at an Exhibition,, the evocative work that recalls the experience of viewing paintings at an art museum. The symphony also gets into the groove with a performance of Duke Ellington’s famed arrangement of The Nutcracker Suite.
