Nebraska Concerts

Sunday afternoon, November 22, on Nebraska Concerts:

A performance from the bass player Francois Rabbath who makes crossing between classical, jazz and improvisation look easy. We’ll hear Rabbath’s performance from the 2015 Meadowlark Music Festival, with music he composed himself, as well as works by his son Sylvain Rabbath, who joins him at the piano. Engaging from the first note, their style is hard to peg down, meandering from jazz to classical to free-form improvisation.

In 2012 Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra did a unique collaboration with four jazz musicians: vibraphonist Joe Locke, pianist Ryan Cohan, Bassist Lorin Cohen, and drummer Carmen Intorre. The orchestra was led by Edward Polochick and the resulting orchestral jazz was recorded on a CD titled Wish Upon A Star. We’ll hear selections including a work by vibraphonist Joe Locke titled Available in Blue.
