About the Event

Orbert Davis' arranged versions of the Miles Davis' classic recordings, Kind of Blue and Sketches of Spain lead to international acclaim back in 2011. Now over a decade later, Orbert Davis and Chicago Jazz Philharmonic return to this fan favorite production. Sketches of Blue is a two part Orbert Davis tribute to Miles. Act I features the Orbert Davis Sextet presenting the compositions of Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue in its entirety. In Act II, the 19-piece Chicago Jazz Philharmonic Chamber Ensemble will feature Orbert Davis' special ‘revisited’ rendition of Sketches of Spain. Using Gil Evans’ original arrangement as the canvas, Orbert took many liberties, adapting the existing material and composed new movements inspired by his studying of Spanish music, culture and geography.
