Echoes of Ellington

REF NR: 7461

Brought to you by the Isle of Wight Jazz Weekend.

Duke Ellingtons music contains a unique blend of contrasts and contradictions. At once visceral and elegant, intimate and shouting, traditional and progressive, the music is unique, exciting, earthy and refined.
 
Today, the Echoes of Ellington Jazz Orchestra is in its finest incarnation yet, with highly specialised virtuoso players on all the instruments who understand intimately the nuances put on the page by the Duke. Whether a familiar standard such as Satin Doll, or a rare marvel from one of the Suites, you can be sure of a sonic big band journey like no other.
 
Alongside the set of Ellington's greatest hits, the band will be, for fairly obvious reasons, recreating the epoch-making 1956 album Ellington At Newport! Expect to hear Diminuendo And Crescendo In Blue, Skin Deep, I Got It Bad, Jeep's Blues and the wonderful if rarely performed Newport Festival Suite.
