LJO: TRIBUTE TO J.J. JOHNSON

The LJO will perform its homage to J.J. Johnson, one of the leading jazz musicians of the post-swing era. Regarded as one of the first trombonists to embrace bebop music, J.J. Johnson was a key player and innovator in this definitive style. Collaborating with jazz greats including Dizzy and Miles, Johnson blazed a path for himself in the bebop movement doing for the trombone what Charlie Parker did for the saxophone.

The Luckman will host an open rehearsal and two jazz workshops with the Luckman Jazz Orchestra on March 10, 2012 starting at 5pm. Participants will have the opportunity to observe a rehearsal of the Luckman Jazz Orchestra musicians, and a master class. For more information please call 323-343-6616.

LJO: TRIBUTE TO HANK MOBLEY

Hank Mobley stands out as one of the most revered tenor saxophonist and composers of the hard-bop era in jazz. Mobley’s style was laid-back, subtle, and melodic, especially in contrast to players like Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane. The outstanding musicians of the Luckman Jazz Orchestra, conducted by Charles Owens, will honor Hank Mobley’s great contributions to jazz by playing newly arranged renditions of his music.
