Bob Brookmeyer and Toshiko Akiyoshi were two “masters of the pen” who recognized the genius of their predecessors in jazz and classical music, and harnessed their creative techniques and skills to create works exploring music’s elements of rhythm, harmony, melody, and texture. In this performance, jazz studies students share some of the Brookmeyer and Akiyoshi works that helped to solidify their reputations as master composers and arrangers. Selections will include Brookmeyer’s ABC Blues, First Love Song, and Hello and Goodbye, and Akiyoshi’s Road Time Shuffle, Transience, and My Elegy. Come celebrate their music, as performed by the Northwestern University Jazz Orchestra.
