About the event

PRESENTED IN ASSOCIATION WITH ANNIE'S JAZZ.

Two of the greatest jazz composers were Duke Ellington (1899-1974) and Billy Strayhorn (1915-1967).

The nature of the collaboration between the Duke and Strays remained a mystery to audiences, record buyers and critics. Who composed what? This famous question has been debated over decades between critics, musicologists and fans.

In a 1962 interview, Duke Ellington said, “Strayhorn lives the life that I would love to

live. You know, he is the pure artist”

This Dynamic and Unique, Cutting-edge Ensemble of Musicians. Is a Power Packed Experience of Emotions and Excitements based on a Large Revisited Repertoire of the Two Famous Composers Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn.
