Washington 2018: Piano Vibes Duet with Dan Duval

THE ART OF THE LATIN JAZZ DUET

Instrumental jazz duet performances are a unique experience, one which transports the audience into a more intimate setting, and allows close introspection into the artists’ inner creativity. Arguably, no other duo has better defined the magic of the piano and vibraphone jazz duet more than Chick Corea and Gary Burton. They paved the way for this new format, enabling newer generations to express themselves creatively.

Join Francesco Crosara and Dan Duval in a special piano & vibraphone duet performance. Travel through original compositions, Jazz and Latin standards, Brazilian rhythms, Blues
and improvisation.
