CMA Jazz on Main: Oscar, Ahmad & George: Three Legends of Piano Jazz
One was knighted by the Queen of England, another was named a Living Jazz Legend by the Kennedy Center, and another won eight Grammy Awards and was referred to as the "Maharaja of the keyboard" by Duke Ellington. There is no shortage of world-class jazz pianists, but the names George Shearing, Ahmad Jamal, and Oscar Peterson stand out amongst the best. Each developed a signature sound in the 1950s that would become a point of reference. Their unique styles would go on to heavily influence countless musicians. The Noel Freidline Trio with special guest saxophonist Doug Henry presents an evening of music made famous by Shearing, Jamal, and Peterson, including such classics as "Lullaby of Birdland," "So Rare," "Poinciana," "But Not for Me," "Night Train," and "Band Call."

Author and Dessert Designer Caitlin Freeman Lecture and Demo
A self-taught baker, Caitlin Freeman is the resident pastry chef for Blue Bottle Coffee. A former owner of the San Francisco cake and sweets shop Miette, Caitlin made a name for herself creating simple and lovely cakes and cupcakes using local and organic ingredients. Inspired to bake by the confectionary paintings of California painter Wayne Thiebaud, she saw her chance to re-create those very cakes when Blue Bottle opened a café in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Four years and many art-inspired desserts later, she wrote the book, Modern Art Desserts, to chronicle the desserts, inspiration, and adventures that happened when combining art and cake.

Get a sneak peek of two exciting exhibitions of African-American art premiering at the CMA in the spring of 2016.

The second exhibition runs concurrently with REMIX and features modern and contemporary work from CMA’s own collection of African-American art. With works by artists as diverse as Romare Bearden and Alison Saar, the CMA has built a collection for education and enrichment of the community and all who visit our institution.
