Jazz has always pulled inspiration from every corner of the globe.

"East Meets West" will explore jazz under the influence of the Orient. Selections include highlights from Dave Brubeck's "Jazz Impressions of Japan,"Horace Silver's "Tokyo Blues," and Duke Ellington's "Far East Suite," as well as Japanese themed compositions by jazz legends Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, Django Reinhardt and Cal Tjader.

The evening will also feature jazz interpretations of Japanese classics such as "Sakura," 1963's "Sukiyaki," as well as the classic "Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence" by famed Japanese film scorer Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Also featured will be selections from the Eastern inspired "Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio" by Claude Bolling. Charlotte Symphony flautist Amy Orsinger will be the featured soloist on this crossover classic, which combines the best of the classical and jazz world.
