Chris Walters Trio
"Rhapsody In Burlesque: The Music of George Gershwin & Cole Porter" is a deep dive into jazz trio arrangements of works by those two American composers. Works performed will include many of the popular songs written by each composer, as well as some of the more ambitious works of George Gershwin, including "Rhapsody In Blue", "Concerto In F", "Cuban Overture", and excerpts from his opera "Porgy & Bess". All augmented by Chris Walters' unique style at the piano and distinctive singing voice. Accompanying Chris will be Zeb Briskovich on bass, and Miles Vandiver on drums.
