ABOUT THE SHOW:

The TD Niagara Jazz Festival and the Exchange Brewery presents ‘Ellington at the Exchange’, an evening featuring some of the most rousing and poignant melodies written and performed by the illustrious jazz composer Duke Ellington.
‘Sir Duke’ chose to celebrate the uniquely distinct voices within his big band, which in turn, gave Ellington his own unmistakable sound.  It is with that same spirit that vocalists Faith Amour and Melissa-Marie Shriner perform “Ellington at the Exchange”, honouring the songs and musical personality of Duke Ellington as they bring together their two unique voices along with some of Niagara finest jazz musicians.
