About this Performance

Our annual mini-festival dedicated to the silkiest sounds around returns for another night of breezy tempos, rich melodies, and laidback vibes. This year’s edition includes the great George Benson, the jazz guitarist and R&B star behind hits like “On Broadway,” “Give Me the Night,” and “Turn Your Love Around,” with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Gregory Porter, the two-time Grammy winner whose buttery voice and tender lyrics have made him his generation’s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter, joins in the fun. And singer Lizz Wright opens the night with a voice The New York Times calls “a smooth, dark alto possessed of qualities you might associate with barrel-aged bourbon.” Get ready for a supremely smooth evening!
