Lush Life -- Billy Strayhorn at 100

November 29, 2015 will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Billy Strayhorn, pianist and composer, and often unsung hero of American jazz. Frequently eclipsed by the imposing shadow of his legendary mentor, Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn nonetheless penned numerous classics of the Great American Songbook, including Lush Life, Chelsea Bridge, Daydream, and of course, the Duke Ellington Orchestra's biggest hit, Take The "A" Train, based on the directions Ellington had given Strayhorn on how to get his apartment.

To celebrate Strayhorn's tremendous talent, I'll be playing a number of tribute concerts over the next few weeks.  Here are two such upcoming concerts:

Sunday, November 15 -- Corner Store Arts
900 South Carolina Avenue, SE
