Few artists command more respect than Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, otherwise known as the genius yet irreverent core of Steely Dan. The CCJO puts its own spin on hits like “Do It Again”, “FM” and “The Goodbye Look” and many more... all while staying true to the sophistication, complexity and humor that makes this great American band such a classic.

Academy and Grammy Award-winning musician and composer Burt Bacharach is one of the most influential American pop composers of the 20th century. His melodies helped create the nation’s soundtrack from the ‘60s through the ‘90s and have been recorded by hundreds of artists worldwide, including jazz greats like Stan Getz and Herbie Hancock. Hear the Phil DeGreg Trio and multi-reed specialist Hal Melia paint these American classics in all-new colors. And you never know… they might just show you the way to San Jose.

The late great Kenny Wheeler had the unique appeal of being both an exciting and incendiary trumpet player, as well as an introspective and genius composer. DIVA alumnus and Juno Award nominee trumpeter Ingrid Jensen also possesses this poised balance of fire and reflection. The CCJO welcomes Ingrid to Cincinnati - during Women's History Month - to perform many of Kenny Wheeler's most famous pieces, including new interpretations of his hauntingly beautiful music.
