"TAKE LOVE EASY:
DUKE & STRAYS AT THE THEATER"
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19
ST. PETER'S CHURCH
54TH & LEXINGTON, NYC
Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn's scores for productions
such as BEGGAR'S HOLIDAY, POUSSE CAFE and JUMP FOR JOY
yielded such important & delightful songs as "I Got It Bad,"
"Tomorrow Mountain" and "C'est Comme Ca."
Eric, Barbara & Sean give us their unique take on this under-explored aspect
of Ellingtonia, as well as other great songs and instrumentals,
both famous ("Chelsea Bridge") and rare
("Star-Crossed Lovers," AKA "Pretty Girl").
