About the event

Count Basie and Duke Ellington were bandleaders, colleagues, composers and celebrities who created dozens of timeless standards elevating jazz to high art. Ellington created classics including 'Mood Indigo', 'Take the A Train', 'It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)' and many others. Count Basie was a big band pioneer, composer and arranger who created a unique sound for his ensembles. Both men led acclaimed bands over their long careers, which boasted some of the best musicians of their day, reading like a who’s who of American musical greats. Trumpeter Wynton Marsalis leads one of the most sensational big bands of our day. He and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra pay homage to the greatest jazzmen to ever swing in a red-hot night of great tunes and improvisation.
