Orbert Davis’ CJP Chamber Ensemble celebrates the centennial birthdays of two of the jazz genre’s most influential artists: Thelonious Monk and Ella Fitzgerald. While Ella’s music has been a staple of Chicago Jazz Philharmonic performances, new arrangements of Thelonious Monk works will premiere under Orbert Davis’ baton, blending jazz and classical genres. This performance will also mark a CJP debut for vocalist Tammy McCann, hailed by Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune as “the next great voice coming out of Chicago.”
