Robert Hurst III Presents D3 | Joel Ross + Brandee Younger

Detroit native Robert Hurst III returns to Orchestra Hall stage to premiere D3, featuring Detroit's own Karriem Riggins (drums) and Ian Finkelstein (piano), which has been described by critic Mark Stryker as "compelling compositions that distill an encyclopedia’s worth of African American music, including swinging post-bop, African and Caribbean influences, contemporary beats from hip hop, and more.” Hurst has enjoyed a stellar 30-year career becoming one of the most in-demand bassists in music, performing alongside the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Dave Brubeck, Yo-Yo Ma, Diana Krall, and countless others.

Brooklyn-based vibraphonist Joel Ross and recently awarded Rising Star Harpist in "Downbeat" Magazine’s 2020 Critics Poll Brandee Younger make their Paradise Jazz Series debut with a unique duo set.
