CANCELLED Ray's Jazz: Matt Cooper presents Duke Ellington as Pianist
Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been cancelled. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
The Duke Ellington Society UK presents Duke Ellington at the Piano.
Join us for a very special piano recital by Matt Cooper, the foremost authority on the piano styles of the lauded American composer Edward Kennedy Ellington (1899-1974).
Duke Ellington is recognised as one of the greatest composers of the 20th Century - and among the all-time jazz piano greats. For 50 years he wrote masterpieces, most of them intended to played by his renowned orchestra and soloists. But many were also recognised as enduring works for the piano, to be played "straight" or as a basis for jazz improvisation. Matt Cooper, author of the book Duke Ellington As Pianist and himself a jazz and classical pianist, will play Ellington’s formal pieces and demonstrate his jazz piano styles.
Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road
