From "The Look of Love" to "Take Five," the CJO celebrates the timeless works of these songwriting masters and purveyors of cool!
Combining elements of jazz, pop, Brazilian music and rock, Bacharach created a unique new sound that was as contemporary as it was popular. The CJO welcomes back Grammy Award-winning bassist/composer/arranger John Clayton to lead the orchestra in a number of classics from the legendary hitmaker with help from trumpeter/vocalist David Pruyn. The incredible talents of Bobby Floyd will also be on display including a tribute to the late great Dave Brubeck, considered to be one of the foremost exponents of cool jazz.
