Duke Ellington Big Band
Had a great time listening to the Duke Ellington Big Band at the Bicentanario Expo. Wonderful music played by a swinging group of cats. It doesn't get much better than this. Too much good horn blowin'. Some trumpet highlights were excellent plunger work from all of the cats and Kevin Bryan killin' the Cat Anderson book as well as bringing down the house with his solo on the Ellington classic and 1 of the best big band showpieces of all time Rockin' In Rhythm. The only bad thing about the concert was that the guys only got to play for about 30 minutes. I could have listened all night. I was able to talk with a few of the cats after the show. Always nice to talk with real musicians.
