Event Details

Arranger, lyricist, and pianist Billy Strayhorn was Duke Ellington's alter ego. They partnered for 30+ years in writing both popular and artistic jazz compositions. "Take the A Train", "Lush Life", "Day Dream", and "Isfahan" are examples of works penned by this quiet jazz composer and lyricist. "Something to Live For" will revisit Strayhorn's masterpieces through a contemporary lens, with the help of some of Detroit's most talented jazz musicians. They will explore the virtuoso's library, combining energy and sophistication to present a unique vision in a way that Billy Strayhorn would've appreciated.
