Kenny Burrell & Los Angeles Jazz Orchestra Unlimited
Jazz at LACMA is proud to kick off its twenty-first season with legendary guitarist Kenny Burrell and the Los Angeles Jazz Orchestra Unlimited. The concert marks the premiere of the Los Angeles Jazz Orchestra Unlimited (LAJOU), which features some of the finest jazz musicians in Los Angeles and will showcase new music by LAJOU co-directors Kenny Burrell, Charley Harrison, and Dr. Bobby Rodriguez. A special highlight of the concert will be a tribute to the great Duke Ellington in honor of his birthday, April 29.
