Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - The Edge of Jazz?
A Night Of Groundbreaking New Music
From hard bop, to post bop, jazz funk fusion and experimental electronica, Herbie Hancock has blazed a trail across modern jazz with a pioneering spirit and fearless sense of creativity. The iconic ivory-tickling bandleader crosses the boarders of jazz, classical and improvisation during this specially curated program of bold new works from the modern torchbearers of his innovative genius, all overseen by versatile Chilean guest conductor Paolo Barolameolli.
Hancock and Bortolameolli kick things off with the world premiere of American Composer Hitomi Oba's LA chamber ensemble commission. Her previous work September Coming explores the expression of gestures of momentum and improvisational parlance and how nuance, orchestration and phrase arcs bolster the vivacity of improvised material. This will be followed by new works by jazz pianist Vijay Ayer, drummer and composer Tyshawn Sorey, saxophonist and bandleader Kamasi Washington, Grammy winner Billy Childs and Brazilian experimental composer Hermeto Pascoal.
Performance date: 1 January 1970
