Two legends of piano jazz light up the stage in one magnificent concert! With his distinctive harmonic approach and daring improvisations, Dave Brubeck defined the '60s sound of West Coast Cool and made "Take Five" the first-ever million-selling instrumental jazz hit. The Kennedy Center honored him with a Living Jazz Legend Award in March 2007, the same year that marks the 50th anniversary of his first international tour as a U.S. cultural ambassador. Three-time Grammy winner Ramsey Lewis embodies the great diversity of music from his native Chicago. His early gospel playing and classical training shot him to the top of the charts with such smashes as "The In Crowd," "Hang on Sloopy," and "Wade in the Water." Don't miss this powerful merging of these NEA Jazz Masters, in which Brubeck and Lewis's ensembles each perform separately.
