The CBC Cultural and Educational Programs Committee will present the performing duo, Mood Indigo, in a free concert on Friday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m. in the Gertrude R. Jones Fine Arts Auditorium.

Take a simple idea: two-part harmony and an acoustic guitar. Add the sophistication of Ellington, Gershwin and Cole Porter, the rhythmic complexity of Jobim and the playful spirit of Bobby McFerrin, Al Jarreau and Stevie Wonder, and you have Mood Indigo.

Dubbed “a glass of champagne” by artist David Adickes, this popular Houston-based duo blends the simplicity and lyricism of the folk idiom with the harmonic complexity of jazz to create a wholly unique and engaging sound.

Mood Indigo’s repertoire includes popular music from the 1920s to the present and features compositions by such artists as Ellington, Gershwin, Cole Porter, the Ink Spots, Jobim, Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, Dave Frishberg, and Al Jarreau.
