Aardvark Jazz Salutes Ellington at Emmanuel Church Boston
(Published: April 18, 2011)

The Aardvark Jazz Orchestra (38th season, Mark Harvey Music Director) celebrates Duke Ellington at Emmanuel Church, 15 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116, on Saturday April 30, 2011 at 8:00 pm. Tickets: $15. Call 617 776 8778. The show is a Weekend Kickoff Event in Jazz Boston's Jazz Week. Expect an exhilarating mix of classics and rarities from Ellington's 5 decades of composing, including The Mooche, Solitude, Caravan, Wild Man Blues (from the major motion picture Paris Blues), and Billy Strayhorn's Daydream. Sacred music will be drawn from the Second Sacred Concert, performed by Duke Ellington and His Orchestra at Emmanuel Church in 1969, including Heaven, It's Freedom, The Shepherd, and Praise God and Dance. Guest vocalist Dominique Eade and guest narrator Robert Honeysucker will join Aardvark vocalists Jerry Edwards and Grace Hughes in featured roles. With global distribution of 10 CDs and wide-ranging performances in festivals, clubs, concert halls, colleges and universities, Aardvark has been a major force in the international jazz scene for almost 40 years. JazzTimes called Aardvark "a bracing walk on the wild side of the big band spectrum...Aardvark suggests the best and the brashest of Charles Mingus, Gil Evans, George Russell, and even Frank Zappa."
