Monday Night Jazz Series: Duke's In Town
Duke's In Town, featuring John Lamb with the USF Faculty Ensemble. Bassist John Lamb, with a big, soulful sound, perfect time, and a commanding stage presence, is a Bay Area treasure. As Duke Ellington's bassist, he toured the world and appeared on classic recordings including 'The Far East Suite.' He maintains a busy performance schedule after decades as a music educator, and a few years ago traveled to Toronto to record 'Conversations - North of the Border,' which includes his composition, 'Duke's In Town.' Lamb brings a singular insight into the incomparable music of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn.
