Jazz and the Philharmonic

Some of the world's top jazz and classical talent are joining forces for an upcoming concert and recording project, paying homage to some of the greatest composers of both genres.

JAZZ AND THE PHILHARMONIC is being put on by The National YoungArts Foundation, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, and JAZZ ROOTS Producer Larry Rosen, and will feature the talents of Bobby McFerrin, Chick Corea, Dave Grusin, Terence Blanchard, Mark O'Connor and more.

Taking its cue from Norman Granz's legendary Jazz at the Philharmonic concerts, which took jazz out of clubs and into concert halls, JAZZ AND THE PHILHARMONIC is looking to the same while also expanding on the idea by including a full size philharmonic orchestra.

The concert has already been recorded and will be released as an album by Okeh Records on February 25th. A video of the performance will be show on PBS three days later on the 28th (in this case, the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra).

The following teaser trailer, with clips from some of the show's performers serves as a good taste of what to expect.
