Ken Mathieson’s Classic Jazz Orchestra: Ellingtonia
Teviot Row
Edinburgh EH8 9AJ

Sunday 14th July, 1.00pm

The drummer’s band has been championing the composers and arrangers of classic jazz, from Jelly Roll Morton to Ellington to Gerry Mulligan since its inception. Today, for the first time at EJBF, they present a programme focused on Duke Ellington, who with his alter ego, Billy Strayhorn, were surely the greatest composers and arrangers of the classic jazz period of the 1920s to 40s. From the Cotton Club to the Blanton-Webster band of the 40s Ellington produced scores of great pieces, and the CJO will pick the best for this concert and offer contrast with a sample of Ken’s own new composition: ”Threads”
