Legendary South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela and jazz pianist Larry Willis take the stage together at Aladdin Theater. Masekela is best known for his Grammy-nominated hit single, "Grazing in the Grass," which sold over 4 million copies in 1968 and made him an international star. He later played an integral role in Paul Simon's tour for the classic album Graceland

Willis has worked with a variety of musicians, from performing an opera by Aaron Copland under the direction of Leonard Bernstein to recording with Paul Murphy to demonstrate the fusion principals of bebop and avant-garde jazz. Masekela and Willis have been friends since their school days in the 1960s and having often played together, their rapport shows in their music.
