Peter H. Bloom, flute; John Funkhouser, piano: Duke Ellington Celebration May 11, Farmington CT
(Published: May 04, 2019)

The Garmany Music Series presents A Tribute to Duke Ellington by the jazz duo of Peter H. Bloom, Flute and John Funkhouser, Piano, at the Farmington CT Main Library, 6 Monteith Drive, Farmington, CT 06032. Free and open to the public. Convenient parking nearby. For information: 860-673-6971.

The show will include a mix of classics like Take the A Train, Don't Get Around Much Anymore, Caravan, and In a Sentimental Mood, with other gems like I'm Beginning to See the Light and the lush ballad Chelsea Bridge by Ellington's longtime composing partner Billy Strayhorn.

Peter and John have performed together for more than 20 years. Both are veterans of the legendary Aardvark Jazz Orchestra (46th season), and each has impressive credentials performing nationally and internationally. They play with style and verve.

Peter H. Bloom performs in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, New Zealand and Australia, and appears on 45 CDs. He has shared the stage with Charles Neville, Sheila Jordan, Geri Allen, Ricky Ford, Jaki Byard and other jazz greats. Jazz Improv praised his "exquisite melody," while ArtsFuse wrote, "Bloom's solos on flute and amplified flute are always highlights of a performance."

John Funkhouser has appeared with notables like Luciana Souza, Tierney Sutton, Ran Blake, Herb Pomeroy, Laszlo Gardony, Stan Strickland, and piano savant Matt Savage. He has performed at Birdland, Blue Note, Dizzy's in New York, the Kennedy Center, and other top venues from Kansas City, New Orleans, and Chicago to Paris, Singapore, and Hong Kong. He teaches at Berklee College of Music.
