Named for Duke Ellington’s protege and intimate collaborator Billy Strayhorn, this little big band will explore corners of the ducal canon that still resonate in modern music. Trends like Exotica and the Bebop revolution will be shown to have clear precedent in the repertoire of the great Ellington Orchestra. Duke’s unique mastery of song form will be displayed in mash-ups, straight readings and updated approaches. David Slusser – arranger, conductor, soprano and baritone saxophone Annelise Zamula – alto saxophone Sheldon Brown – clarinet, tenor saxophone Mara Fox – trombone TBD – trumpet Joe McKinley – bass Greg German – drums
