Acclaimed elder statesman and reed player Bennie Maupin performs with composer and bass clarinetist Todd Marcus, a rising national star based in Baltimore. Maupin's performances with the likes of Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Freddy Hubbard, Lee Morgan and Horace Silver have made him a seminal figure in jazz since the 1960's. He joins in on recent compositions by Marcus and his 9 piece Orchestra, fusing straight ahead jazz with Middle Eastern tonality. Come early and enjoy a special picnic dinner courtesyof Clementine!
