In the early 1960's an extended stay in Paris was particularly fruitful for Duke Ellington and his musicians. The iconic bandleader would score and star in a movie, write and record an album and perform a memorable concert at the L'Olympia. That concert was recorded and released nearly a decade later - titled The Great Paris Concert - and was truly one of the great live band performances of all time. Join the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra as we celebrate that magical evening with performances of Kinda Dukish, Rocking' in Rhythm and other classics from the set-list of Ellington's Great Paris Concert.
