Event description
The Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra presents Duke Ellington & The Chaos of Newport - November 3, 2021 at 7:30pm

About this event

The most famous band in jazz was playing empty rooms in the early 1950s. As jazz fans turned to cutting-edge bebop over the old big-band swing, Ellington was forced to pay his band members out of pocket. That all changed at the 1956 Newport Jazz Festival and a chaotic night that lives in infamy. Join the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra, featuring saxophonist Niall Bakastaad-Legare, as we pay tribute to the remarkable night that revived Duke Ellington's Big Band, landed him on the cover of TIME Magazine, and rocketed him back to superstardom.
