LJO: featuring Dianne Reeves

Dianne Reeves, today’s preeminent jazz vocalist, will join the critically acclaimed Luckman Jazz Orchestra for a stellar one-night-only performance. Undeniably one of the most important jazz vocalists in history, Dianne Reeves’ impact on the art form is deeply rooted. The four time Grammy Award-winner’s incredible artistic range is celebrated throughout the world. The New York Times says Dianne Reeves is “the vocal heir of Sarah Vaughan.”

Presenting choreographic works that examine human relationships, this extraordinary collection of world-class dancers articulates the perfect marriage between explosive hip-hop physicality and the subtle profoundness of contemporary story telling. A combination of the narrative, the spectacular, and the freedom of break dancing with the abstraction, nuances, and technique of contemporary dance results in a true hybrid of dance forms. Under the direction of distinguished dancer and choreographer Victor Quijada, Rubberbandance has soared to extraordinary levels. The Los Angeles native formulates a refined repertoire that amalgamates his early roots with his transplanted foundation.

Khatia Buniatishvili

Khatia Buniatishvili is “justifiably hailed as one of the great pianists of the future” by the UK’s Guardian. Prize winner of the 2008 Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition, Khatia was distinguished as a BBC New Generation Artist in 2009 and invited to collaborate with the BBC Orchestra throughout the 2009/2010 and 2010/2011 seasons. The Financial Times described Khatia’s performance of Liszt as “magisterial” and her Schumann as “poetic and profound”. Khatia has appeared with many of the world’s premiere orchestras including the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, and the NDR Hamburg Symphony Orchestra.

LJO: Heath Tribute feat. Carmen Lundy

Celebrated jazz vocalist and composer Carmen Lundy joins the Luckman Jazz Orchestra for a one-night-only performance at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex. Carmen Lundy is hailed by the Los Angeles Times as having a “voice of agility and seductive allure.” The LJO will begin the evening with an incredible tribute to the incomparable Jimmy Heath. During his five decade career, Heath has performed with jazz greats including Howard McGhee, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, and Wynton Marsalis. Heath performed on more than 100 albums and wrote more than 125 compositions.

Yann Tierson

With his whimsical, melancholy music, Yann Tiersen has become a sought-after composer. Borrowing from French folk music, chanson, musette waltz, and street music, as well as rock, avant-garde, and classical and minimalist influences, Tiersen’s deceptively simple style has been likened to Chopin, Erik Satie, Philip Glass, and Michael Nyman. Tiersen gained worldwide acclaim for his score to Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Amélie, and Wolfgang Becker’s German tragicomedy, Goodbye Lenin! When asked to discuss his esthetic, Yann Tiersen describes it perfectly, “Let’s live in an enormous world of sound we can use randomly, with no rules at all. Let’s play with sound, forget all knowledge and instrumental skills, and just use instinct.”
