Ellington Orchestra: Live at the Chicago Blue Note 1959
Eastside Jazz Club, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire
200 Jennens Road, B4 7XR
Ellington Orchestra’s favourite club venue was the now famous Chicago Blue Note run by Frank Holzfeind. In this series of concerts we are using the legendary recording from this venue in August 1959 to try and recapture some of this spirit and to keep the flame burning for live big band jazz in a club setting.
