The Pan American Symphony Orchestra together with Chaise Lounge performs some of Chaise Lounge's original compositions of swinging symphonic "lounge" jazz. This program also includes a work for cello and orchestra by Mexican composer Arturo Marquez, Lluvia en la Arena, a beautiful haunting melody that evolves into a tango; Isfahan by Billy Strayhorn; and Duke Ellington's symphonic jazz suite Martin, a tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. Directed by Maestro Sergio Alessandro Buslje, with Dorotea Rácz on cello, Chris Hemingway on soprano saxophone, Jason Solounias on piano, and the retro-jazzy Chaise Lounge, this concert presents a broad variety of swinging symphony sounds.
