Spiritual Source: Randy Weston with the Chicago Jazz Ensemble on September 1, 2011 at 6:30 p.m.
One of legendary jazz pianist Randy Weston's most significant collaborations was with trombonist/composer/arranger Melba Liston. Together they created a pioneering body of jazz music that explored music from the African Diaspora and yielded over ten albums. For this program, Weston joins the CJE to perform Liston arrangements from the music library at the Center for Black Music Research plus new works by CJE Artistic Director Dana Hall and Chicago cellist Tomeka Reid that were specially commissioned for this FREE concert.
