In the jazz world, no one stands taller than Edward Kennedy “Duke” Ellington – the subject of the latest concert presented by Wings Productions.

This urbane man from Washington D.C. produced literally thousands of compositions - works that have become standards and elegant contributions to American Music. From its beginnings in the 1920s to Duke’s passing in the 1970s, the Ellington Orchestra was his “instrument” and a home for many of the most renowned musicians in jazz.

The music of Duke Ellington will be played by the outstanding 16-piece John Blount/Dave Tucker Big Band. The concert will feature classic Ellington arrangements from sultry early compositions like Black & Tan Fantasy and Mood Indigo to mid-career swingers like Cottontail and In A Mellow Tone as well as Strayhorn classics such as Take The A Train and Juan Tizol arrangements of Caravan and Perdido. Narrated by Jazz Straight Ahead co-hosts, Jan and Eric Tegler, stories about Duke Ellington and his music will be woven throughout the concert.
