Jazz by Candlelight presents- A Tribute to Duke Ellington & Miles Davies

Jazz by Candlelight transforms Manchester's most beautiful venues into intimate Jazz Clubs, bathing the space in candlelight to provide the perfect backdrop for some sublime jazzy sounds. We seek out the best talent in the UK, who for this special edition will be playing a tribute to the works of Duke Ellington and Miles Davis. One of the great innovators in the genre, Davis is highly respected. His album Kind of Blue is one of the best-selling jazz albums of all time, and after his death, Davis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Ellington is also widely considered pivotal in the history of jazz, with his reputation only rising after his death. He was noted for his inventive use of the orchestra, or 'big band', and for his eloquence and charisma. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a history lesson on two of the most influential and acclaimed figures in the world of jazz.
