Exactly 50 years ago, the great Edward Kennedy “Duke”  Ellington passed away on May 24th 1974.


Swingmasters present a program dedicated to one of the greatest jazz composers, bandleaders and pianists.  Duke Ellington was during 50 years non stop active as big band leader, and in the past his  great muscians like  Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves, Barney Bigard, Ben Webster,  Clark Terry often played his music in smaller bands like this evening!  The setlist is focused on Duke’ music with some sidesteps to work of his famous contemporaries.


The  band’s well known “cotton club” sound is dedicated to the eternal miracle that is ‘swing’.  Treat yourself to a charming, classy evening in the presence of those great jazz legends. As regular guests at the Music Village, the standing ovations are always well deserved!
