Coming off their 2013 Drama Desk nominated show Le Jazz Hot, jazz virtuoso saxophonists and clarinetists Peter and Will Anderson perform the hits of big band legends Count Basie and Duke Ellington. Prepare to dive into the sultry sounds of Kansas City, New Orleans, and Harlem from the 1930's through 60's, while exploring the vast differences between the Count and the Duke. These swing-era celebrities toured to world with their orchestras, appeared in Hollywood films, and shaped the sound of American Music for generations to come. The Anderson's quintet will revisit Ellington's "Take the 'A' Train," "Mood Indigo," and Single Petal of a Rose." and Basie's "Blues in Hoss' Flat," "Lil' Darlin," and "Corner Pocket" and more.
