Two of music’s most legendary names are the bandleaders Duke Ellington and Count Basie. In this show, we highlight some of their most extraordinary repertoire. We delve into the beloved swinging classics of Count Basie’s bands, and then move into Duke Ellington’s magnum opus: Black, Brown, and Beige, a concert work that challenged America’s notions of what Jazz composition could be and what it could represent.

Jazz ambassador Libby Richman will be introducing the program.

Registration is recommended.
