Description

“Triumphant!” -- The Chicago Tribune

Many years after going out of print, Duke Ellington’s jazz symphony Black, Brown and Beige gets a reboot by The Jon Faddis Jazz Orchestra of New York. After a performance of the piece, Chris Ernst of Nique.net said, “the heyday of jazz is easy to feel. Faddis’ virtuosic playing was mesmerizing.” Don’t miss this incredible night of music from a bygone era in many ways as modern today as it was cutting-edge then.
