Billy Strayhorn Festival Set for Chicago Suburbs

The Billy Strayhorn Jazz Festival, organized by the Music Institute of Chicago and Billy Strayhorn Songs Inc. will be held this weekend in Evanston, Ill. Check out The Chicago Tribune for the program and other information. For us, it’s an excuse to feature Duke Ellington’s right-hand man. Here he plays Take the A Train with the Ellington Orchestra.
