Pete Long’s Echoes of Ellington
UK Big Band fans from the 1990’s remember the Echoes Of Ellington as one of the great powerhouse jazz orchestras, balancing as it did historical accuracy with virtuoso playing and an incredibly high performance energy.

The aim of the band was always to expose its audience to the great power and range of emotions inherent in Duke Ellington’s music, and for this it reached great acclaim, touring the UK, Europe and that most hallowed of destinations for a British big band, the United States.

After a good fifteen year hiatus, the Echoes Of Ellington are back, with an even stronger line-up than before! Taking advantage of the huge amount of research done globally on Ellington in the intervening time, and with some of the most incredibly able new soloists on the scene, you can expect bluer indigos, higher high spots and more exotic moods than ever before!
