4.05| Koncert: Essentially Ellington feat.

4 maja @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Essentially Ellington feat. Tony Kofi and Marco Marzola Quartet (MMQ)!
April 29this Duke Ellington 125th Birthday! Celebrating the Music of Ellington & Strayhorn!
Two of the greatest jazz composers were Duke Ellington (1899-1974) and Billy Strayhorn (1915-1967). The nature of the collaboration between the Duke and Strays remained a mystery to audiences, record buyers and critics. Who composed what? This famous question has been debated over decades between critics, musicologists and fans. In a 1962 interview, Duke Ellington said, “Strayhorn lives the life that I would love to live. You know, he is the pure artist”.
Marco says: “it is a privilege to be playing at Jazz Café POSK with my band. We will be commemorating the life of Duke Ellington, one of the greatest jazz composers, transcending all centuries. 29th of April is his birthday. He would have 125 years old. That is why, we are counting on you, to honour his life. Join us on 4th of May to celebrate his legacy!”
“Is a very dynamic and unique cutting-edge ensemble of musicians. Is a power packed experience of emotions and excitements based on a large, revisited repertoire of the two legendary composers Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn”.
