The Dukes Ambassadors: Duke Ellingtons 120th Birthday: Ellington Plugged In
Happy Birthday to the legend. Join four of St. Louis finest jazz musicians as they honor one of the true titans of jazz, Duke Ellington. It is in honor of his great genius that The Focal Point & The Christopher Parrish Quartet are proud to present the second annual Duke Ellington Birthday Celebration Concert.  Duke was positively electric in his music and influence on jazz; Christopher Parrish is proud to present a night of all electric instrumentation, something rarely heard in conjunction with Dukes popular music and in a small-group setting. The members of the Christopher Parrish Quartet will be announced late February.

Christopher Parrish (Jazz Pianist/Band Leader):

Christopher prides himself on his virtuoso technique, power and breadth as an improviser. Speaking in terms of genre, his greatest passion lies not in any one style of jazz but in the components of jazz music itself. Christopher comes from a highly musical family. Although he hated the idea of formal piano lessons as a child, he took to teaching himself with obsessive determination. Originally from Indiana, he moved to St. Louis in 2017 to further his career in music. Both fiery and contemplative, his playing is often characterized by dramatic changes in mood and texture. In addition to his solo playing around the St. Louis area, Christopher is excited for the 2nd Annual Duke Ellington birthday show here at the Focal Point in April; The Focal Point is delighted to welcome him back!
