The Chicago-based Blue Violet Duo of violinist Kate Carter and pianist Louise Chan makes its recording debut with an album of jazz, blues, and dance-influenced classical works from the mid-to-late 20th century by four  American composers – Norman Dello Joio, William Bolcom, John Adams, and Paul Schoenfield. The artists say, “We love performing lesser-known works that are fun and playful, yet virtuosic, and which don’t take themselves too seriously. They’re unfamiliar to many concertgoers, but everyone ends up loving them.”
