This is a celebration of the songs of these two pivotal jazz giants: the bandleader, pianist and composer, Duke Ellington and the openly gay lyricist, pianist, composer and close friend of Martin Luther King and Lena Horne - Billy Strayhorn. These four UK jazz superstars present some of the best swinging tunes and stunning ballads ever written, from the composers of ‘Take The ‘A’ Train’, ‘Passion Flower’ and the seminal ‘Lush Life’.

“There is so much respect in jazz circles for Tony Kofi”
