Please join us for a concert celebrating Duke Ellington’s 120th birthday, as part of our Off Minor Jazz Series.

Ellington elevated the perception of jazz to an art form on a par with other more traditional musical genres. During his five-decade career, he wrote more than one thousand compositions, making his extensive body of work the largest recorded personal jazz legacy, with many of his works becoming standards. His mark on American music is indelible.

In this tribute concert, the Alphabet City All-Stars—featuring James Moore(trumpet), Paul Cosentino (reeds), Jeff Bush (trombone), Alton Merrell (piano), Paul Thompson (bass),and Thomas Wendt (drums)—will play both well-known and lesser known selections from Ellington‘s jazz repertoire.

 

Featured musicians:

Jame Moore (trumpet)
Jeff Bush (trombone)
Paul Cosentino (reeds)
Alton Merrell (piano)
Paul Thompson (bass)
Thomas Wendt (drums)
