Episode 5: Conversing In Third Stream

Today’s conversation is a post-concert audience discussion hosted by jazz journalist and Grammy® nominee Neil Tesser, Orbert Davis and members of his Chicago Jazz Philharmonic Chamber Ensemble about the Third Stream in jazz; the intersections between the classical and jazz music genres; chamber group versus orchestra; and why CJP is “the only orchestra of its kind in the entire United States” (Gunther Schuller).

It was recorded after the Chamber Ensemble’s debut performance at the University of Chicago in November 2009. We begin the program with a performance of “Amadeus Had A Dream”, recorded live from that concert, featuring pianist Anthony Molinaro.
