CARRY ME HOME – TOURING 18-19

with special guest Cyrus Chestnut

The instrumentation is recognizable to any aficionado of chamber music, that of the classic piano quintet. Renowned jazz master Cyrus Chestnut and the GRAMMY® winning Turtle Island Quartet continue their remarkable journey together as they traverse the myriad colors of jazz and beyond. The collaboration is infused with the global reach of gospel and sacred music- ranging from the Appalachian Mountains to the spiritually defined musical landscape of J.S. Bach. Dipping into the rhythms of world cultures, these five multi-stylistic singularly, gifted musicians come together to embrace the transcendental power of great music. A moving night of Ellington, Bill Monroe, Bill Withers, Coltrane, and more.

The program will be announced from the stage and will include selections from the following pieces:

“Come Sunday” – Duke Ellington
“Rafta Rafta Woh Meri” – Mohammed Rafi (Sufi Ghazal)
“The Old Crossroads” – Bill Monroe
“Hari Tuma Haro” – Mirabai (12th century, Hindu Bhajan)
“Gloria In Excelsis Deo” – J.S. Bach
Wade In The Water” – spiritual
“Compassion” – John Coltrane
“Will The Circle Be Unbroken” – Ada Habershon
“Lean On Me” – Bill Withers
