this by far was the worst performance from the LJO in a long time; we were pretty disappointed. They seemed sloppy and the pieces they chose to play sounded like they were showtunes and generic. I have loved the performances from LJO in the past, and will continue to attend their Jazz Tributes, but this was one I could have afforded to miss.
Herbie Hancock is a true icon of modern music. Throughout his explorations, he has transcended limitations and genres while still maintaining his unique, unmistakable voice. Herbie’s success at expanding the possibilities of musical thought has placed him in the annals of this century’s visionaries. With an illustrious career spanning five decades, he continues to amaze audiences and never ceases to expand the public’s vision of what music, particularly jazz, is all about today.
The Luckman Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of Charles Owens, concludes their season-long series of tributes and honors this jazz titan with an evening journey through the powerful and significant works he has created over the course of his prolific career.
