about

In celebration of Billy Strayhorn's centennial year, world-renowned educator, composer, arranger and pianist Bill Dobbins continues his explorations into the music of major jazz composers. These live solo performances, recorded at Eastman's Kilbourn Hall and Hatch Recital Hall, focus on the music of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, whose collaboration is one of the most unique in the history of jazz, if not all of Western music. The repertoire ranges from well-known classics by these jazz giants to seldom heard and more recently discovered works, carefully selected to represent the full range of their musical creativity and arranged by Dobbins in a manner reflecting nearly forty years of research, analysis and performance.
