On stage at a City Winery jazz concert is probably not the first place you’d go looking for some of Chicago’s most reputable classical musicians. But this Chicago Philharmonic Chamber Players quartet is hardly your typical bunch of classical musicians. Made up of a vibraphonist who’s played timpani under Leonard Bernstein, a pianist who’s also a professional violinist, a bassist who’s played hammered dulcimer on recordings available in your local record store, and a drummer who’s on the percussion faculty at the Curtis Institute of Music, the quartet also harbors an intense passion for jazz. Come hear guys who can ace Wagner scores and Beethoven symphonies put their formidable chops to work at Miles Davis charts and Duke Ellington tunes, and relax – among the swinging sounds of jazz’s greats and the fragrant smells of Sunday brunch at City Winery, everything else don’t mean a thing.
