Reserves and Prices

Duke Ellington is undeniably one of the most prominent musical icons of the 20th century.

His big band classics reach deep into your soul and transform you through their distinctive ensemble sounds.

And they’re still amongst the most-performed today: Take the A Train, In A Sentimental Mood, Caravan, and of course, It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing).

A giant among of the greatest masters of our time

— Duke Ellington

2024 marks 50 years since the great bandleader’s passing, and who better to mark this special occasion and to celebrate the importance of his contribution to music than our very own international jazz maestro Mr James Morrison.

James is a musical genius in his own right, a multi-instrumentalist, and a highly entertaining showman, who always delivers an unforgettable performance.

I’m honoured to be paying respect to this legend of big band swing, who’s one of the most influential figures that’s shaped my career.

— James Morrison

Joining James on stage will be a swingin’ big band, boasting some of the finest jazz musicians in the country.

Swing along to all the big band classics you know and love at this very special tribute.
