The Spiritual Side of Duke, Pt. 1

  • Deer Mountain Inn 790 County Road 25 Tannersville, NY, 12485 United States (map)

An autumn jazz residency led by master percussionist John Lumpkin in his first return to the Catskills since the Catskill Jazz Factory's Joy of Jazz Week in 2014!

The Spiritual Side of Duke will explore the less recognized and spiritual elements of Ellington's famous body of work, honoring one of jazz music's greatest legacies in homage to his "sacred concerts," three massive works from Ellington that were written between 1965 and 1973 that combine elements of jazz, classical, choral, gospel, blues and dance. Featuring John Lumpkin II (drums), Toru Dodo (piano) and Adam Coté (bass).

3-course Dinner & Admission: $60 Admission: $20 To reserve: Call Deer Mountain Inn at 518-589-6268
