Pre-recorded from the LA Phil's 2011-12 season Opening Night Concert at Walt Disney Concert Hall, the performance features some of Gershwin's best-loved works, including the "Cuban Overture," "An American in Paris" and "Rhapsody in Blue," as well as intimate solo improvisations by Hancock on "Embraceable You" and "Someone to Watch Over Me."
The event also features exclusive footage of Hancock – the LA Phil’s Creative Chair for Jazz – in his home, playing Gershwin and providing insights into his improvisational process.
Gustavo Dudamel conducts the orchestra.
LA Phil LIVE is produced as a collaboration between the LA Phil and NCM Fathom, a division of National CineMedia (NCM).
