The Emerald City Jazz Kings: C Jam Blues

The Emerald City Jazz Kings, led by Glenn Griffith, celebrate the music of the incomparable Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington and his orchestra.

Glenn's goal for this concert was to have plenty of Ellington's best-known and best-loved songs, his classic big band hits, and some other less know pieces, like two solo piano pieces and "Lightning Bugs and Frogs" from The Queen's Suite.

The show also covers music from Duke's Cotton Club era, and from his classic albums and concerts (the Newport Jazz Festival, the Great Paris concert, Queen's Suite, New Orleans Suite), and his work with Ella Fitzgerald and with Frank Sinatra.

Look for classic songs and instrumentals like "Satin Doll," "I'm Beginning To See The Light," "Mood Indigo," "Cottontail," "Perdido," "C Jam Blues," "In A Mellowtone," "Single Petal of a Rose," "Caravan" and more.
