Ellington's Jazz Nutcracker presented by Roosevelt Jazz 2013
The Nutcracker Suite by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn is a 1960's take on Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker. The Roosevelt Jazz Band is one of the few bands in the United States to have the score had the annual performance of the Nutcracker suite is wonderful tradition.
Ellington reworked Tchaikovsky's tunes into swinging versions; 'Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy' becomes 'Sugar Rum Cherry' and 'Arabian Dance' is now 'Arabesque Cookie' .
The Roosevelt Jazz Boosters presentation of Ellington's Jazz Nutcracker is a treat for the whole family.
