From Bach to Coltrane, from Piazzolla to Django Reinhardt,
from Path Metheny to Stevie Wonder… It all magically blends together with the unique, electrifying sonority of Maksin’s cello and Datcu’s guitar.
After at 50-concert European tour and another Coast-to-Coast USA run from LA to NYC, Chicago-based cellist, composer and multi-lingual vocalist Ian Maksin is back at Jazz Showcase again joining forces with his long-time collaborator, Romanian virtuoso guitarist Gabriel Datcu!
This time the duo will share their freshest cello-guitar renditions of tunes by Pat Metheny, John Coltrane, J.S. Bach, Astor Piazzolla, Bela Bartok, special tributes to the great Gypsy Jazz duo – Django Reinhardt and Stefan Grapelli, as well as funk and R&B classics from Bill Withers, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Alicia Keys and more. Maksin will also share some of his latest acquisitions from his recent touring: music of Kurdistan, Latvia, Cuba, Eastern Siberia and yet more…
