About Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival: Ken Mathieson’s Classic Jazz Orchestra: Ellingtonia
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
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 was surely the greatest composer and arranger 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 to play today.
