Duke Ellington Orchestra

Legendary composer and bandleader Duke Ellington comes to life as some of today’s greatest jazz musicians gather to pay tribute to his musical legacy. An evening with the Duke Ellington Orchestra showcases Ellington’s greatest hits from a career that spanned more than six decades.

“Take the A Train” for a concert packed with songs that Ellington described as “American Music” rather than jazz. From a songbook that includes up-tempo favorites like “It Don’t Mean a Thing” to heartfelt ballads like “Solitude” and “Mood Indigo,” Ellington’s melodies will undoubtedly create an evening to remember.

“Duke Ellington was a dreamlike synthesis of image, talent and social relevance.” The New York Times

“Every music honor this country can bestow is little enough for such a musical giant as this man.” Jazz critic and historian Ralph J. Gleason
