Seattle Symphony: Sonic Evolution

The Seattle Symphony presents the perfect collaboration to close out Seattle’s jazz festival. This evening of orchestral and ensemble works celebrates Seattle’s jazz legacy with an homage to iconic producer Quincy Jones, who began his stellar career in jazz and popular music at Garfield High School and appeared as a trumpeter and band leader on Seattle’s fabled Jackson Street. Appropriately, the award-winning Garfield Jazz Band, under Clarence Acox, joins the orchestra for tunes from the Jones “book.” The phenomenal Seattle-resident trumpeter Cuong Vu plays a new composition with the symphony. And, because November 11 is the birthday of Jones’s contemporary, the much-loved and recently departed treasure Ernestine Anderson, vocalist Grace Love sings some of “Stine’s” favorites. (Presented by the Seattle Symphony.)
