Stockholm Swing All Stars – In the spirit of Duke Ellington
Duke Ellington renewed and worked his repertoire all the time, like the parade numbers “Take the A-Train” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing If It ain’t Got That Swing”.
Stockholm Swing All Stars furthers his legacy. Swiftly, cleverly and inevitably, they show that there are continually new approaches to this classic American music.
In addition to a selection of Duke’s classics, the band also presents some rare numbers from Ellington’s huge production and some new compositions in the master’s spirit.
