“Walking with Cecil Lytle on the rue St. Paul last June brought to mind my impression of Cecil as the quintessential ‘American in Paris’ – urbane, sage, and deeply connected to both the French and American (and especially the African-American) traditions,” recalls Steven Schick. This sparked a desire to create a program around Cecil’s special artistry. We ask him to play Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and commissioned three works with him in mind from the extraordinary pianist/composer Asher Tobin Chodos, including an original work for two pianos. Stephanie Richards solos on trumpet in Copland’s Quiet City.
