Repertoire with hits and lesser known gems

Duke Ellington. His music is an inexhaustible source of inspiration. The same goes for All Ellington, a tentet with musicians from the flourishing Amsterdam improv scene. Last summer the group gave a number of outdoor concerts. A composition was written for each of those concerts, inspired by the location. In the BIMHUIS, these five compositions together form a real suite, in the best Ellington tradition. All Ellington has already closed the year several times in the BIMHUIS with music by Duke Ellington, arranged by various band members. At All Ellington, respect for the original compositions goes hand in hand with the individuality and ingenuity of the band members, just like in Ellington's orchestra itself back then. The All Ellington repertoire features big hits alongside less obvious gems.
