St Andrew’s Big Band (SABB) makes a welcome return to UXBRIDGE to present a special tribute to the legendary Duke Ellington.

Following on from SABB’s tribute to Count Basie in 2019 the band is excited to present a concert dedicated to the genius of Duke Ellington – one of the greatest jazz composers and bandleaders of all time whose recordings remain among the most popular jazz of the big-band era.

The programme will include some of his biggest hits including “Take the ‘A’ Train”, “In A Mellow Tone”, “I’m Beginning To See the Light” and “It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)”.
