Uptown Lockdown Broadcast – 10 June 2020
I was delighted to be a guest contributor to UPTOWN LOCKDOWN – a live broadcast by The Duke Ellington Society UK (DESUK). I talked about what Ellington and Strayhorn’s music means to me, what I’ve learnt from the singers like Betty Roche, Joya Sherill, Kay Davis, Sarah Vaughan, Ella, to sing this this inspiring music.
UPTOWN LOCKDOWN is co hosted by Frank Griffith and Antony Pepper, both board members of DESUK on Wednesdays, 5pm UK time. The program discusses matters Ellington and Strayhorn, playing tracks as well as snippets live playing. Consider joining them at the Discord link from dukeellington.org.uk
